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. For additional photo reference, look to Cooking Classics: Citrus Apple Butter.
