Hate the nasty white “stuff” around every orange segment? Wish you could just eat the juicy, tender part? I have the 5 minute tutorial for you!

Just buy some ripe oranges (that have a little “give” when squeezed), get a sharp knife out, and in minutes, you’ll have a bowl full of Orange Segment White Membrane-Free!

Want another tip? Keep your orange segments pre-sliced in a refrigerated bowl covered with plastic wrap  for up to 5 days! You’ll have the perfect snack or addition to salads pre-prepared. Or, wink-wink, you’ll be one step closer to the Citrus Peppercorn Smoked Salmon appetizer from yesterday’s post!

Equipment

  • Sharp knife

Ingredients

  • Oranges navel, cara cara, etc.

Instructions

  • Start off by peeling an orange.
  • Rest the bottom of the orange on a cutting board. Use a sharp knife to cut the thin white membrane off the outside of the orange. The orange should now be completely orange!
  • Pick the orange up and place it in the palm of your hand so that you can easily see the membrane that separates each orange segments.
  • Use your knife to cut between the membranes (lines between segments) to the center of the orange so that the segments pop out.
  • Repeat until all segments are removed from the membrane. Repeat for all oranges!
