140. Preparing Oranges for the Table

In preparing oranges for the table
take a sharp knife, cut the skin straight around, insert the handle of a

spoon turned over flat to fit the orange and loosen shell by forcing spoon

to within one-half inch of the end, around one side, then the other, after

which cut the orange through the center, making two parts. Then turn the

skin back in cup form, making a pretty decoration for the table and

serving as handles. Always serve in halves.
