Orange Peels~”Must-Have” Tool

Someone asked me the other day to name some of my “must-have” tools for the kitchen.  At the time it seemed difficult to come up with ideas.  Then last night I remembered what I think is one of the greatest inventions of all time!

Yes, it’s winter and that means oranges are in season.  I found a great bargain on them at the store yesterday so brought home a bag full of ripe, juicy, sweet naval oranges.  I have always loved and appreciated oranges for their flavor and fiber and vitamin C content, but when I was young I could not stand trying to peel one.  It seemed that if I was actually able to get the peeling started, the “white stuff” always landed under my finger nails, I had juice running all over my hands, and the sections were more of a mess than sections.  I tried the method of cutting the peel with a knife, cutting off the ends, you name it, I still struggled with the simple task of peeling an orange.  Then I discovered this magical little piece of plastic known as an Orange Peeler.  

This tool can be used by most any age- it cuts the peel but isn’t sharp like a knife, so even young hands can use it.  Here are some pictures of me using my orange peeler.
