Too Busy To Peel An Orange?

By | September 26, 2008


I missed out on this when it was published, there was an interesting article on the Daily Mail website back in July which highlighted a decline in the popularity of oranges. The reason? Because we're too lazy to peel them.

Apparently tangerines and clementines are becoming more popular because they are easier to peel. I have to say, I empathise completely. Oranges can be a real pain to peel, especially if you're doing it for an orange juice and have had them in the fridge to guarantee a cold drink. That's why, if you mainly want the juice of citrus fruits - oranges, lemons, limes, grapefruits - a citrus press juicer is a better way to go than a centrifugal juicer.

Just slice the fruit in half and press it down on the reamer to get lovely juice, and with none of the hassle of peeling.

Are you put off oranges by the nuisance of peeling them? Use the comments box to let us know...
