Everyone has their own technique of peeling a mandarin – but there’s a simple ‘hack’ that is wowing thousands online.
The easy-to-follow trick resurfaced on social media this week, with many praising the idea because you don’t need to remove all of the skin.
The video demonstration shows how you can roll the segments out into one straight line, allowing you to simply pick off pieces as you want them.
Start by peeling both ends of the mandarin, before ripping a line on the side.
Next, spread the mandarin on the line, making cuts in between sections carefully with your fingers.
Unroll the fruit so the individual sections separate into a perfectly lined strip – now you can enjoy each segment without having to peel the entire mandarin.
