How To Peel And Segment Oranges
Seedless citrus fruit, such as navel oranges, are best for cutting into segments.
- #How To Peel Orange# With a chefs knife, cut away both ends of the fruit just to the flesh. Set the fruit upright on a chopping board.
- Working from top to bottom using the same knife, cut away the zest, pith, and skin following the curve of the fruit. #How To Segment Oranges# Holding the fruit in your hand, slide the knife down one side of a segment, cutting it from the membrane. Cut down the other side and pull out the segment.
- Repeat with remaining segments, turning back the membrane like the pages of a book.
- “Segment the fruit over a bowl to catch the juice.”
