Summer means maxing out on your five a-day, and you can’t beat a really good orange.
Here’s how to peel this citrus fruit using a spoon without making a total mess of your kitchen and/or outfit, because life hacks!
All you need is said orange, a teaspoon and a tablespoon.
Here’s how…
1. Score the midsection of the orange using the head of a teaspoon.
