The secret to supreming?

Katie Nell | Jan 22, 200701:46 PM     26

Arrgghhh... so frustrating! Just thinking the word 'supreme' is frustrating me right now and to never hear "I Hear a Symphony" again without frustration is just not an option! ;-) I've watched people do it, I've attempted it before, but I think this Saturday was the ultimate in frustration. I was trying to supreme two oranges and two ruby red grapefruits for a citrus salad and a half hour later, I had citrus coleslaw!! Is there a secret to it? Or does practice just make perfection? Do you peel your citrus as if you were going to eat it and then proceed with the supreming? Or do you slice the peel off the top and bottoms and then down the sides and then proceed from there? Is there any hope?
