v. to remove the skin, pith, membranes, and seeds of a citrus fruit and separate its wedges. Also as noun, a wedge of citrus fruit.
I made an orange and fennel salad last night that required orange slices, so I thought I'd offer a simple how-to on cutting perfect membrane and pith free orange segments (aka Supreme)...
1. Trim the top of the orange
2. Trim the bottom.
3. Carefully take your knife and begin carving around the orange.
4. Trim as much of the pith (white skin) off. Then find a segment (membrane) and cut to the right of it, cutting as close to it as possible so you don't end up wasting too much of the orange.
5. Now cut the other side of the orange segment. Carefully cutting left of the second membrane.
There you have it! A perfectly sliced orange.
