Cutting Citrus into Segments

  1. abcdz2000 (

    Using a sharp knife, cut about a half-inch slice off each end so that the fruit can stand on end.

  2. Slice off strips of the peel, pith, and outer membrane, working from top to bottom around the fruit.
  3. Working over a bowl, cut between the inner membranes to separate out the segments.
  4. If the recipe calls for juice, squeeze the cut-off top and bottom and the leftover inner membranes.

    It is the most visual appealing. Presentation is everything!


  2. That’s how I see chefs do it. Does the fruit taste any better that way, or is it just the most efficient way to segment fruit?
