Delicious. I love grapefruit and cardamom, so I had to give this a try. I've tried both honey and sugar. I like it a little better with sugar, but I'm not a huge fan of honey. Thanks for the healthy breakfast, snack, dessert idea.

I decided I need to eat more grapefruit, so I tried this for breakfast today and really enjoyed it. I stirred the cardamom into the honey/vanilla mixture instead of sprinkling it on top. My grapefruit was very tart, so the honey was a nice contrast with it. Very tasty and I will be sure to have this again soon. Thanks for posting!

I too love grapefruit AND cardamom so when I saw this recipe in the photo forum knew I had to try it as was not disappointed. I used the ingrediants exactly as listed but did change the process a little bit. I wanted to make sure the flavors where all through it so sectioned the grapefruit and dumped the pieces into a bowl where I could stir everything together, then returned to the grapefruit shell and broiled as directed. Very good and I'll be making again - though think I'll cut down a little on the honey as I really love the tartness of grapefruit and it was a little sweet for me. Thanks so much for posting.

Yum! I've been making this as a mid-afternoon snack or a light dessert in the evenings. I was a bit skeptical before I tasted it, but it turns out that the flavors blend beautifully. A keeper!

I too love grapefruit and wanted to try this recipe. I used 1/2 of a grapefruit and cut honey/vanilla mixture to 1/4 of the recipe. The grapefruit I bought recently haven't been as juicy and sweet as normal, so this was a great way to bring out the juices and sweeten it up!! I thought I had cardamon, but I couldn't find on my spice shelf, so couldn't add it this time!! Thanks for sharing a nice grapefruit recipe!!! Made for PRMR and Think Pink Event for Breast Cancer Awareness!!

This was a nice breakfast side. I really liked the vanilla on it. The sweetness of the honey/vanilla was nice with the sour/tart of the grapefruit. Thanks so much for posting!

Love grapefruit too and this is a wonderful way to fix it!! Loved the cadamom on this (never would have thought of that!). Grilled it a bit (next time will grill it a bit longer) and enjoyed it! Thanks Lainey! :)
