I started eating them when I played soccer as a kid. At halftime, We always got oranges cut into eighths, still in the peels. I was hungry and instead of just leaving the peels I'd eat the thing whole. I was also in my "Mork" phase and I imagined it something he would do like how he ate a banana.

Even now, when I eat oranges, I think about hot sunny days in the red clay of Oklahoma.

My wife thinks eating orange peels is dangerous. I tell her "marmalade".

I have that much more respect for you now that I know you went through a "mork" phase.

Well, we're talking 1978-1980 here. I wasn't the only one. Mork was huge back then.

I also eat lemon peels when a wedge is served as a garnish for my drink. No way I'm loosing precious alcohol to the cruel, porous skin of a citrus!

What about the oranges where the white part of the peel is very thick? Those are great!

And it's good for you too. Lots of soluble fiber.

Not only fiber, but now they're saying that orange peels ward off cancers and lower cholesterol. I eat an entire orange with peels every night.
