Cooking Tips
  1. The technique of removing the pith, skin and membrane from citrus fruits and leaving behind only the pulp sections is referred to as “supreme.” This is achieved by cutting a slice off the top and bottom of the fruit and then with the fruit sitting on a flat surface, cut away the skin and pith in strips. Next, while cradling the fruit in your palm, section away the fruit segments from the membrane with a sharp knife. This is a skill that is very useful in the kitchen and gets easier with practice.
