* HOW TO SUPREME CITRUS FRUITS:
- SLICE RIND - Start with a very sharp knife. Trim the fruit’s ends; set a flat side on a cutting board.
- REMOVE PITH - Slice off the peel and pith in sections, following the shape of the sphere.
- SLICE SEGMENTS - Set the fruit on its side. Cut toward the center, along a membrane. Then slice along the adjacent membrane until the cuts meet, releasing the segment. Transfer the segment to a bowl. Repeat.
- SQUEEZE JUICE - Hold the membranes over the bowl and squeeze to juice.
