How To: Segment an Orange

Like oranges? Don't like the skin? Nah no one eats that.

What about the pith? .. wait.. what the heck is pith?  Well I will tell you.

It is that white stuff inside the orange (or any citrus fruit). The stuff that keeps the oranges into little segments. The stuff you always eat anyways.

But today I decide to rebel and not eat the pith.

Stay tuned for the next post...where I actually put this skill to good use ;)

How To Segment an Orange

Cut both ends off the orange. I had previously zested this orange that is why it looks funny!

With a flat side down on the cutting board, use a sharp knife to carve around the shape of the orange. Leaving as much as the orange stuff as you can and removing as much as the white stuff as you can!

If you look closely, you can see the different segments of the orange. Again use a sharp knife, cut along each side of the pith (white part) of each segment. Cut on a angle so your cuts join each other at the center
And then you have nice segments! 

Pith free orangyness!
