Morning CitrusCitrus Segments and Juice
february 9, 2015

One of my kids will always eat her oranges, while the other waffles between sometimes and maybe. But if I cut off the peel, pith and membrane that holds all the good parts together, he eats them up. This is one of my favorite ways to get us all some vitamin C and fiber in the mornings. Thank you Marcus Samuelsson, for teaching me the easy way to cut citrus fruit into segments!

From p. 84 of Marcus Samuelson's Marcus Off Duty: The Recipes I Cook at Home, here's what you do:

Cut the top and bottom off of the orange, so that it has a flat side on either end.

Stand the fruit on one end, and cut down from the top to cut the peel and white stuff off, all the way around. Trim off any bits you've missed after you are done.

Hold the fruit over a bowl and cut along each side of the membrane of each section. Let the sections and juice fall into the bowl.

When all the sections have been sliced off, squeeze the remaining juice into the bowl and discard the remainder.
