How to Select
Select oranges that have finely textured and relatively firm skin, and that are heavy for their size. Do not rely on color to select oranges- some oranges are dyed to appear brighter in color, but yellow and slightly green-tinged oranges can be just as tasty!
How to Store
Oranges will keep well for 1-2 days at room temperature, or for 1-2 weeks in the refrigerator.
How to Prepare
Oranges are segmented naturally, and the simplest way to prepare them is to peel the orange and break into sections with your fingers. For orange slices with the peel still attached, use a sharp knife (serrated knives work best) to quarter the orange, leaving the peel still intact.
