Cutting an Orange

Orange is one of my favorite fruit and is packed with Vitamin C.
The many ways to enjoy an orange.
1) Cutting it into 6-8 slices, then juice it out using the teeth, leaving the flesh intact to the orange peel to be thrown into the rubbish bin (which i consider as very wasteful)

2) Creating lines on the orange peel, then using a spoon to skin out the orange peel (this is not a practical approach as the flesh might stick to the peel sometimes, resulting in a poorly skinned orange)

3) I discovered a more practical approach to enjoy the orange to the fullest.

First, cut off the top and bottom of the orange as shown:
Then, start to slice off the peel (half first) around the orange
Flip over and continue with the other half till the orange is fully peeled/skinned
This is how it looks like when its nicely peeled using a knife
Leaving you a whole orange to be enjoyed. (The fiber/flesh of the orange is not wasted and is actually good for your digestive system.)

erm, maybe u should start learning the traditional orange skinning method. The skinning process looks wasteful to me.
