Not so sour grapefruit

Do you like grapefruit? No? Me either. Well, until now. Because I just stumbled on a new way to make this healthy fruit that keeps me going back for more. What’s the secret? You roast it! And everyone knows that roasted veggies taste great, so why not a roasted grapefruit?

It’s crazy easy. Slice a grapefruit in half and remove the seeds. Then, with a sharp paring knife, cut along the tough white part that separates each section. Also, cut along the outside of the edible part of the grapefruit to separate the sections from the peel, but leave it all in place within the grapefruit half. Place the halves on a baking sheet. Spread each half with some butter, because butter makes everything taste great, right? I use about a half teaspoon or so on each half. Then drizzle with some honey, or spread some brown sugar on each half. I use about a teaspoon of honey (or brown sugar) on each half. Then put them under the broiler for about 5 minutes. I’m going to try it with a sprinkle of cinnamon next time I make them.

I guess you’re supposed to share with someone, but so far no one else here wants any, so both halves are mine!

  1. Sounds delicious! I’m wondering how it would taste with some of your homemade maple syrup.
