Tuesday Tips: How to Supreme a Grapefruit or Orange


 Happy Tuesday! It's time for another tip from our Tuesday Tips.  Have you ever tried to supreme a grapefruit or an orange before?  I have seen chefs on TV do it all the time, but never thought to do it myself.  That has all changed after I figured out how easy it was to do it and the beautiful segments of citrus you can add to salads and dishes. 

I recently got a fantastic deal of grapefruit at my local grocery store when they put them on sale for 2 for $1.  I love grapefruit (to my son's bewilderment because he thinks they are so sour).  I love sour fruits so they are lovely in my opinion. 

I bought a dozen of them and decided I should come up with a couple of recipes while I had such a big stash of them.  Of course, I can just eat one grapefruit as my dinner so it's not like they would go to waste or anything.  But I did come up with a very cool recipe (sharing that tomorrow) to make with the grapefruit and a couple of oranges that I practiced on. 

Here is another quick tip, when you are supreming the citrus, make sure to do it over a big bowl to catch all that juice because it's just too good to go to waste.   So give supreming a try... it really makes for a wonderful presentation for any dish or salad that your are adding citrus.
