    If you smuggle in a copy of the Malaysia penal code, you ought to get executed for it.

    The white balance tools might help you balance the white stuff on the orange (not the sort of white stuff Weird Al sang about [ ] nor the sort that gets you executed in Malaysia for smuggling it). There’s got to be a Rule 5 picture of this.

    You’ve got to admire the lexicographic laser-sharp goal of finding a specific word for removing orange pith. This person should be a PhD in arcane English at some university.

    I suspect there’s an actual culinary term for the process of de-pithing an orange. I may have even heard it some time but I don’t remember it; I just remember “if you’re going to use orange peel in stuff, get the white part off because it’s bitter”

    Something Wiki this way comes:

    For culinary use, a zester, grater, vegetable peeler, paring knife, or even a surform tool is used to scrape or cut zest from the fruit. Alternatively, the peel is sliced, then excess pith (if any) cut away.

    I definitely know what it’s like to have excess pith.

    I did find a useful life-hack, due to this pith research. Apparently, if you microwave your orange for about 20 seconds, it makes it easier to peel. Will let you know if it works.
