Pro Tip: How to Cut Supremes
This French technique is a bit more complicated leaving tender segments of orange without any of the membrane. Supreme citrus is often used in salads.
1. Stabilize the orange
With a very sharp paring knife, slice off both ends of the orange to expose the flesh. Place the orange with one cut end down on the cutting board.
2. Cut off the peel
Working as close to the citrus flesh as possible, cut along the curve of the fruit to remove a section of peel, exposing the fruit underneath. Once the peel is off, you can trim off any remaining bits of pith still clinging to the orange.
3. Segment it out
Working over a bowl, hold the peeled and pith-less orange in your non-dominant hand and, using the knife, carefully cut along the membranes (the core of the orange) to slice out each segment (aka "supreme"). Let the segment fall into the bowl. Continue rotating the fruit and cutting out the supremes, until you’ve separated all of the membranes from the citrus supremes. Use your utility knife to remove any seeds that might still be attached once you remove the membranes. And don't forget to squeeze that orange core once you've removed the segments—there's plenty of tasty juice in there!
