How to Section an Orange
Learn how to peel and section an orange — and other citrus fruits — in four easy steps.
Cut off the bottom and top ends of the orange, just until fruit is visible.
Stand the fruit on one end and gently slice away the peel, following the shape of the orange. Continue cutting until all the peel and pith have been removed.
Carefully cup the fruit in one hand over a bowl. With a small knife, create sections by slicing along the membranes between each piece.
Drop segments into bowl (along with juice). Repeat until entire orange is sectioned.
