At First I Laughed When She Put Orange Peels In The Fridge But When She’s Done YUM!

The world is full of fast food options and temptingly convenient prepackaged snacks which make it difficult to find and choose healthy foods. It is even harder when you need to come up with a tasty snack that will please a whole classroom full of youngsters. On top of that, many schools now strictly enforce no-nut and no-candy or junk food policies that aim to keep kids healthy and safe from potential allergic reactions. When one woman was asked to bring in a homemade snack for her daughter’s class that fit within the guidelines she came up with the perfect recipe. It is simple, easy to make, delicious, and above all healthy.

All you need for ingredients are six oranges and one packet of unflavored gelatin. In the video the chef, Meg, uses valencia and navel oranges for juice and then the navel orange peels she saves for a later step. Start by slicing the oranges in half crosswise and then juice them until you have one and three quarters cups of juice. Next, pour the juice through a fine mesh strainer to remove the pulp.

Place the gelatin in a saucepan and pour about one quarter cup of juice over it, let this stand and dissolve, before placing the saucepan over medium heat for approximately 5 minutes or until the gelatin is completely dissolved. Mix in the remaining juice and set aside. Take the orange halves and remove the remaining inside flesh with a spoon. Place them in a muffin tin so that they stand up and fill them halfway with juice, place the tray in the refrigerator, before finally filling them up. It is best to refrigerate them overnight or at least four hours before slicing them into wedges and serving.

Kids and adults will love this snack and many children who don’t even like fruit will be tricked into eating it because its presented to them as a treat. There are no added sugars and its even fun to make. Get the kids involved by having them help you juice the oranges and strain out the pulp. If you ever need to bring an item to a potluck, picnic, baby or wedding shower, or really any type of party, they magically fit the bill for all occasions!! Even if you have no where to go make them for yourself as a guilt-free treat. Plus, eating them will make it feel like summer has finally arrived.

Peeling an orange should be an easy task to do, at least that’s what we all have assumed at some point in our citrus eating lives! However, the sad truth is that most of us have no clue what we’re doing and end up making a big, sticky mess in the process. It turns out that there is a much better way to peel an orange than going in blind. So if you have ever struggled through attempts at peeling one open, you need to see this video.

The accompanying clip shows you exactly how to properly go about peeling a ripe, juicy, delicious orange without making a mess. The method is everything you’d want it to be; quick, easy, efficient, simple. All that you really need is a sharp knife and in less than sixty seconds you’ll be done. This technique will also reduce the chances of getting orange juice sprayed in your eyes, which is always a painful experience that no one ever enjoys.

Here is the best way to peel an orange without making a sticky mess. First, place the orange securely on a flat surface so it sits length-wise. Take a sharp knife and carefully cut off both ends of the orange. Next, make a slit down through the middle, but only cut to the center and then stop. This is key to this trick and you want to still have one piece that’s all in-tact, so don’t cut all the way through the orange!

Now grasp the orange at each side of the slit you just made and pull down sideways to split it neatly open. It should unfold to reveal the delicious inner fruit pieces and now you can remove any seeds or the white part, which is called the pith of the orange, if you don’t like how that tastes. What you’re left with are chunks of orange that you can easily peel off the rind and eat, so chow down and enjoy the fruits of your labor without making a mess!

The next time you reach for an orange be sure to try this technique and definitely check out the video to see how it’s properly done because once you see it, it’ll stick with you forever.
