How do you eat your orange?

Do you peel it, and eat the individual sections?

Or do you slice it?

Or do you quarter it?

Or do you cut your orange in half and remove part of the rind on each half like this:

My mother would serve oranges to us kids like this...

And I think of her each time.

Oh, that orange was so tasty..and juicy...and sweet.

I love oranges.

I have never seen oranges cut like that. My question is--how do you eat them? Do you just take big bites? What about the rest of the peel? I really am stumped. However you do it, your mother was a smart woman. Looks like minimal work to me.

I like to "drink" my oranges, but if I have a fresh unpeeled orange I rub it between the palms of my hands for a few moments, then I take a spoon and dig in right at the navel and run the spoon along the peel. If I'm lucky I can take the peel off all in one piece. I was told the rubbing between the palms moves the juicyness to the center and the peel comes off easier. LOVE oranges!
