      I LOVE grapefruit and it's weird taste, but haven't eaten it for a couple of years - since being put on blood pressure tablets. Apparently it reacts with them and therefore grapefruit is the ONE thing they definitely say we (DH and I) cannot eat!
      Nevertheless, I just had to try this recipe - oh, it was heavenly!
      I used a semi-raw sugar, produced here in Australia, which is actually low G.I. so is safe for diabetics. (Called LOGIcane.) Combined with the cinnamon, with the lovely warm grapefruit (never had it warm before) I felt like I'd died and gone to heaven.
      And, yes, I did have the maraschino cherry on top - five, in fact!

      Hi this was a fresh tasty breakfast, I usually just eat my grapefruit as it is but it was a very pleasant change. I am a diabetic and grapefruit is one we can have, so because of that I used splenda with my cinnamon, and didn't use too much as it can burn quite easily and that would not have been nice. But I made up for the sugar with the cinnamon, I do love cinnamon and guess what that is great for diabetics to, so I was very generous with that. I would definitely make this again, well actually I might just have it tomorrow again to use the other half. Thank you for posting Made for Honor thy Mother the diabetic forum May 2011
