Total Time 30minutes
12-15whole assorted ripe citrus such as clementinespink grapefruit, white grapefruit sumo oranges, navel oranges, blood oranges, honeybells, or any other type of citrus-y fruit
2tablespoonshoneysuch as orange blossom
1/4teaspoonred pepper flakes
In a small bowl combine the honey and red pepper flakes. Microwave for 20 seconds and stir. Set aside.
Supreme the citrus by trimming the top and bottom of the fruit with a sharp paring knife; place cut side up. Slice lengthwise between flesh and peel, following fruit's natural contour; remove peel and pith.
Hold fruit over bowl to catch juice. Slice lengthwise between 1 segment and the membrane until you reach the center of the fruit.
Make a similar slice on the other side of the segment and drop the segmented fruit into a large bowl. Repeat for each segment and for each piece of citrus. (This may seem tedious, but it goes pretty quickly and you'll develop a rhythm.)
Once all segments are removed, squeeze juice from membrane into the bowl. Discard membranes and peels.
Microwave the honey for an additional 15 seconds to loosen it up, then pour the honey over the fruit and fold it in gently to combine.
