Test Kitchen video tips: Segmenting a citrus
I remember the first time I tried to peel the the white membrane off of individual orange slices. I think I was trying to make a salad, and what should have been an easy recipe seemed to take forever. I spent most of an hour painstakingly peeling the membrane off of each slice using a pairing knife and my fingers. It was tragic.
I can chuckle now. Little did I know then that learning to segment, or supreme, an orange isn't hard at all, and shouldn't take the day. It should only take a few minutes.
I was just demonstrating the technique to interns earlier this week and thought I'd share some photos of how it's done. Check out the video link above.
