How to peel and pith citrus
Citrus makes a wonderful addition to salads and salsas, but the trick is removing all the bitter pith.

Slide your knife into the orange as close as you can get to the segment membrane. Do this on each side of the membrane to release the segment. Continue segment by segment until all of the segments are removed. Note: there is another way to make citrus supremes that is used by professional chefs. I am investigating this method and will post on it soon.
