This is actually a Christmas present for my mother. It just took a long time to come through US Customs and so it’s a bit late. In the winter, both she and I get chapped hands, and when you’re peeling an orange or Clementine, it’s a killer!
So when I found this little ORANGE PEELER, I knew it would help make her life a little easier during the winter months. You score the skin of the orange with the pointed end, and then slide the flat side of the peeler along the orange, and slip the skin off. Oranges were a special treat in the UK, until the second half of the 20th century, so an peeler like this didn’t get a lot of use and held a special place in the silverware drawer.
