I’m not a Grapefruit fan, unless it’s cooked this way! When I served grapefruit this way at the Bed and Breakfast Inn we had for nearly 18 years, I was able to make a lot of non-grapefruit eaters fall in love with grapefruit. If you’re not a grapefruit fan, try it this way, you will become a believer!

The main thing about grapefruit is to use Texas Ruby Red Grapefruit. That’s a MUST! That grapefruit is sweeter than it’s yellow/orange counterpart, which an be more tart and bitter. Starting with the right grapefruit will make all the difference in the world!

This grapefruit is easy and it only takes 10 minutes from start to finish.
