Merbear of Knocked Over By a Feather felt compelled to write about a serious topic that has been affecting many, many people: the struggle of citrus encapsulation, or SOCE.
Before Merbear submitted her informative post, I had been peeling my oranges with a banana peel because I thought that was its purpose. Now I know more and you can too!
Step one: Check to see how long your nails are. If they are short and nubby, your going to need an extra five minutes, if not longer.
Step 2: Squeeze the orange to check for thickness of the rind. Get a good feel for it. Rub it. Become one with it. Learn the language of citrus.
Step 3: Gently place your thumb at the top of the orange. Press firmly, until you smell the delightful aroma of oranges permeate the air. Imagine yourself on a boat by a river…(This process can be used for tangerines as well!)
Step 4: In a quick downward motion, rip the first small piece of orange peel off, and fling it to the side, like the bitch that it is.
Step 5: Repeat
Step 6: Repeat
Step 7: Repeat
Step 8: Re..fuck it, you get the idea.
Step 9: Behold your expertly peeled orange!
Step 10: Pick all that white shit off of there. Unless you like the white stuff. I don’t.
Step 11: Section it, and enjoy!
