Rinse the orange under cool water. Cut a small piece of the end away from one side of the fruit & place the flat portion onto the cutting board. Remove the outer peel of the orange using a sharp vegetable peeler by moving from the top to the bottom of the fruit. Pick the orange up, if necessary, to complete the task. Try to remove as long of a piece of the peel as you can with each swipe.

Generally, orange peel is used in preserves & marmalades therefore a cooking process will be needed in order to soften the fruit. Slice away some of the white pith if it seems to be excessive as it can have a bitter taste, however cooking the rind will remove some of it. Place the strips of the rind on the cutting board. Thinly slice them & cut into 1 1/2-inch pieces. Use as directed in recipe applications.
