Have you ever gotten citric acid on a cut near your fingernail?
It’s a ferocious drop of agony, isn’t it? There are worst agonies to be endured from citrus abuse. (See: Amazing Orange Facts Below.)
Most orange peelers use a knife to cut towards the thumb, like a stupid mafia boss in a bad gangster movie. The result? A sliced thumb and a long strip or two of orange-peel. Worst of all the orange meat is covered with thick white coat of rind, which steals flavor from the juicy meat.
Add this method to your arsenal of orange peeling knowledge.
I love the simplicity of this peel. It makes even easier to toss orange segments into smoothies; thereby, increasing recovery time from REPEATING GIF ANIMATION INDUCED SEIZURES.
Amazing Orange Facts
- Pectin,a key component of orange fiber, protects the mucous membrane of the colon by reducing exposure to toxic substances; it also binds to and evacuates cancer-causing chemicals in the colon.
eating oranges also reduces bad blood cholesterol levels.
- The spray of orange zest from the orange peel is highly flammable. Ernest Hemingway
used to entertain himself with citrus peel fireworks as he chomped on roasted chestnuts in front of a warm Parisian fire.
- Oranges are full of phyto-nutrients such as caringenin, a powerful antioxidant, free radical assasin, anti-inflammatory agent, and immune system booster.
- Spanariads used oranges to punish criminals and the like. The term, anaranjear, means, literally, to “orangicate” – to pelt something with oranges. Oranges are heavy and soft. Ouch! WTF? Spaniards like to throw fruit, first oranges and to this day tomatoes.
May you be happy. May you be healthy. May you escape being pelted with oranges and just enjoy their delicious flavor instead and also live with ease.
