“Once More with Peeling,” Ensign, Dec. 1981, 65
Do your children find it hard to peel oranges? A little preparation will make it easier for them.
First, wash the orange and then cut a slice from the top. With a paring knife, make slashes from top to bottom, spaced about an inch apart at the widest part of the orange. Be sure the cuts go completely through the rind to the fruit.
At lunch time, the child merely has to start at the top of the orange and peel each section of the rind from top to bottom. Elna Kemp Wallace, Los Angeles, California
