How to Peel an Orange

Scripture to Live By:
 Fret not thyself because of evildoers, neither be thou envious against the workers of iniquity. For they shall soon be cut down like the grass, and wither as the green herb.Trust in the Lord, and do good; so shalt thou dwell in the land, and verily thou shalt be fed.Delight thyself also in the Lord: and he shall give thee the desires of thine heart.Commit thy way unto the Lord; trust also in him; and he shall bring it to pass. And he shall bring forth thy righteousness as the light, and thy judgment as the noonday. Rest in the Lord, and wait patiently for him: fret not thyself because of him who prospereth in his way, because of the man who bringeth wicked devices to pass. 
Psalms 37:1-7

Helpful Tips:
I really enjoy oranges and eat at least one every day.  Some days I eat two or more.  I have never enjoyed peeling them, (because I would get a sticky substance on my hands) until I got an orange peeler.  The first orange peeler I got came with a bag of oranges I had purchased.  I realize I didn't have to get the orange peel juices all over my hands when I used it.

It is  so much nicer to peel an orange if you use an orange peeler.  The peeler I have now is called "The Snacker" from Sunkist. There are other types of orange peelers, but I like this style. It is easy to use. If you have a hard time finding one, I know Pamper Chef has one that looks like the Snacker below.

One end has a hook on it, to cut the peel with out going to deep and cutting the flesh of the orange.  The other end is curved to use to fit inside of the peel of the orange and to go with the curvature of the orange to loosen the peel for easy removal.

Here is how you use it:  Start with a bowl of fresh oranges.

Chose an orange and place it on a plate to catch your peels and any juice.  
This makes for easy clean up.

Using the curved end or the hook, remove the stem of the orange, or you can take a knife and just trim the top off where the stem  as seen below and then score the orange.  

Using the hook end of the peeler, start at the stem and go down the side of the orange and go to the bottom of the orange scoring the orange peel.   

Make as many cuts as you would like.  I usually score it eight times. 
I think  it makes it easier to remove the peel.  

Using the curved end of the peeler, insert it between the peel and the skin and gentle remove the peel by going down the orange with the peeler.  

Continue to do this with each section cut.  

Divide the sections of the orange and place them on your plate.  

To make it look decorative, use the bowl of oranges as your center piece with a few sunflowers  

Your orange is ready to enjoy!  

Now who wouldn't enjoy eating an orange that looks like this.
