Test Kitchen video tip: Segmenting citrus

I remember the first time I tried to peel the white membrane off individual orange slices. I think I was trying to make a salad, and what should have been an easy recipe seemed to take forever. I spent most of an hour painstakingly peeling the membrane off each slice using a paring knife and my fingers. It was tragic.

I can chuckle now, but little did I know then that learning to segment, or supreme, an orange isn't hard at all, and shouldn't take the day. It should only take a few minutes.

I was just demonstrating the technique to interns earlier and thought I'd share a quick step-by-step on how it's done. You can check out the video above.
