I have always been a grapefruit lover. My grandpa lives in Arizona and used to send us big boxes of grapefruit. They were the best! My grandpa kept sending me boxes until I graduated college, so not only do I love eating grapefruit, but they also remind me of my grandpa. I love how food intertwines with special people, events, and memories.
Last week we bought a ton of grapefruit-it was on sale 8 for $1.00. I made a pink grapefruit yogurt cake, but still had grapefruit to use up. I love eating them plain, I peel grapefruit like an orange-it is easier to eat that way:) I wanted to try something new though, so I broiled a grapefruit for a special mid morning snack.
I cut the grapefruit in half and drizzled the tops with a little bit of agave nectar. I also sprinkled on some turbinado sugar. I placed the grapefruit halves under the broiler for a couple of minutes, until the sugars crystallized.
I normally don’t put sugar on my grapefruit, so this was a special treat. I loved the sugary crust on top. I was worried I wouldn’t like the grapefruit warm, but it was actually quite enjoyable. I gave one of the halves to Josh and he enjoyed it too! If you are looking for a new way to enjoy your grapefruit, give broiled grapefruit a try.
