  1. Use a classic chef’s knife to slice off the top and bottom of your orange.
  2. Stand your orange upright on the cutting board. Starting at the top of the orange, guide your chef’s knife down to the base, curving the knife with the shape of the fruit. Continue all the way around the orange until all of the rind and pith is removed. If you have white pith left on the outside of the orange, go back around and slice it off.
  3. Once all the pith is removed, you’ll be able to see the membranes between each orange wedge. Use a gourmet paring knife to slice along the inside of the membranes.
  4. Lift out your supremed orange wedges and place them in a bowl. Now they’re ready for a recipe or a snack!
