To section fresh oranges or grapefruit, be sure to sharpen the paring knife first. A sharp knife is much safer to use than a dull one since it is less likely to slip while cutting. Cut a 1/2-inch-thick slice off both the top and bottom ends of the fruit. Cut the peel and white pith away from the fruit, using a downward cutting motion following the shape of the fruit. Place the peeled fruit piece on its side, then cut down along the membrane on both sides of each section to remove the fruit.
To prevent cut avocados from turning brown, cut them lengthwise in half and remove the pits. Place avocado halves, cut-sides down, in a shallow dish partially filled with water mixed with a few tablespoons of lemon juice. Refrigerate up to 12 hours. It's a great way to prepare avocados ahead of time for salads. Cut avocados as desired just before serving.
