Peeling fruit way seem like an intuitive task, but according to YouTube, there’s always a better, faster way.
From peeling a banana like a monkey to using a power drill to skin an apple, keep scrolling to see the best tips the internet has to offer.
Get a power drill, a thoroughly cleaned flat drill bit, and a potato peeler. Skewer the apple with the drill bit and then turn the drill on. Carefully and gently place your potato peeler against the side of the apple and move it along the length of the apple.
First cut the mango in half and then position it on the glass edge. Apply pressure as you move the mango in a downward motion, forcing the fruit inside the glass as you go.
First, make two small cuts to form an 'X' on the bottom of the peach. Then to blanch the fruit, boil it in hot water for two minutes and then remove to a cold bath of ice water. After a minute, the skin will be loose enough to peel off, starting with that 'X.'
Then cut it in half and take the pit out.
If you're making gazpacho or a tomato sauce, it's a good idea to peel your tomatoes.
Just like with the peach, make an 'X' on the bottom of the tomato. Place the tomato in boiling water for around a minute before removing to an ice bath or simply allow to cool on a towel. Then you can peel from the 'X.'
Cut the top and the base off the orange. Make a long slit on one side from the top to the bottom and then open the orange at the seam. You'll be left with a strip of orange slices, ready to eat.
Make a cut in the orange peel all around the center of the fruit. Then stick either the end of a spoon or your thumb inside the peel and go around separating the peel from the fruit.
Repeat on the bottom and you'll be left with two perfectly peeled orange skins.
