Simply peel and gently separate each segment. You can eat navels anywhere, so take them with you for a sweet, juicy treat on the go!
For a burst of citrus sweetness, add Navel orange segments to your favorite snack. Try them with low-fat yogurt or toss them in your favorite cereal or crispy salad.
For great tasting orange juice, you can hand-squeeze Valencia or peel and quarter the fruit then feed smaller sections into an electric juicer. Refrigerate extra juice overnight or freeze it to enjoy the refreshing taste of fresh-squeezed juice whenever you’re ready.
Valencias are thin-skinned, so they’re easy to peel and toss into your favorite summer salad for a splash of citrus taste.
Kids love to create an “orange smile.” Just cut the fruit in half crosswise, then cut three or four wedges from each half. Tuck just one segment into your mouth and smile.
