  • Meanwhile, using a paring knife, cut a thin slice from both ends of 1 of the oranges. Place a flat end on a cutting board and cut away the peel and the white part of rind. Working over a bowl to catch juices, hold the orange on its side and cut between one section and membrane. Cut along the other side of the section next to the membrane to release the section into the bowl. Repeat with the remaining 3 oranges.
