Can the oranges have a couple peels taken out/inside exposed?

I have two oranges and am trying this, but one orange had a couple strips removed for a garnish, so the flesh is slightly exposed. Will that ruin the boiling process? Assuming I can do it anyway and see how it goes but don’t want to waste the fruit if it will just get ruined. Thanks!

It’ll be fine. They’re boiled to death then blitzed.
