Cut an orange in half crosswise. Place on an attractive dish, scoop out the juice and pulp with a spoon and sweeten if necessary.

West Indian Way: Peel the oranges, taking off as much, white skin as possible, then slice them off all round as you would an apple, regardless of the sections. This leaves the seed, tough, stringy central part, and most of the inner skin together, and is a much less tedious process than removing the skin by sections. Use a very sharp knife, so as to make clean cuts and not crush the fruit. Cut out each section separately, and put on a small plate in the form of a daisy. Put white sugar in center.
