How to Segment Citrus

Posted on 06 July 2016

Segmented fruit is a wonderful garnish and decoration for things like tarts, pies, and desserts. So here’s a quick video and explanation on how to easily segment your citrus fruit!

Start by cutting off the ends of the fruit. Then cut around the edges. Follow the line around the peel. Then cut in between each segment to avoid the pith with a sharp knife and push the segment out. If the segment is uneven, skip it or cut around it as best you can. A sharp knife makes it much easier to cut out pretty pieces.
