How to Supreme Citrus Fruits

How to supreme a citrus fruit step 1

No one has poorer knife skills than I do. I mean no one. My modus operandi is to proceed super slowly while whispering a prayer with every move. When it comes to anything involving a knife, if I can do it so can anybody.

The season’s gorgeous blood oranges, navels, grapefruits beg to be segmented. They’re even prettier so and make a beautiful garnish for salads, entrees, and desserts. My favorite way to use them is on top of cakes and as a crêpe filling/topping.

On a cutting board, cut both ends of the citrus fruit.
