Here’s exactly how to cut an orange into sections with the pith and peel removed (called supremes). They’re perfect for salads and garnishes!
- 1 orange
- Use a large chef’s knife to slice off both ends of the orange. Make sure you’ve cut through all of the pith and can see some of the orange flesh.
- Angle your knife and follow the round shape of the orange to remove the peel. Be careful not to cut too much of the orange flesh away.
- Here’s where it’s a little tricky: cut right on the inside of each membrane line to remove a segment. You don’t want to cut right on the membrane, but just inside of it. Make the two angled cuts, and the segment will pop right out.
- Keep cutting inside each membrane line to remove the sections of the orange. And that’s it: beautiful orange segments with no tough pith!
