Refreshing, warm and a bit sweet. Great on a cold morning. Used extra brown sugar.
Thank you so much! I was telling dh about broiling grapefruit with brown sugar just yesterday. He thought I was nuts. I wasn't sure exactly how to go about doing it (how long, if it was just brown sugar, etc). Incrediblythe recipe is featured on 'zaar's homepage today. Those who did the pics did a great job. How can one go wrong?
I don't eat grapefruit very often, but had received a fruit basket that contained 4 big, beautiful grapefruits. I had the first two my usual way, which was sliced in half with some white sugar sprinkled on top. Then I decided to look on Zaar for another way to have my grapefruit. I found this recipe and found out that I DO like grapefruit. LOL I sliced the grapefruit in half, sliced between each of the sections and cut around the edge of the grapefruit so that the sections would come out easily. Then I sprinkled a little white sugar on the grapefruit and topped it with the brown sugar before putting it under the broiler. Yummy! Now I plan to actually buy grapefruit and not wait until I receive a fruit basket. Thanks for the wonderful recipe.
I've done this for years. It makes a really nice, but light first course to any meal. At Christmas I like to alternate red and green maraschino cherries in the middle of the grapefruit halves before broiling. It makes such a festive table!
It never caramelised for me either but it was very nice all the same.
Hmmm. This didn't work for me. I used Brown Sugar Splenda (diabetic, trying to save on sugar) so I think that's where I strayed. The flavor was fantastic, but it never got crispy on top. Also, it was a really juicy grapefruit so I don't know if that kept it from caramelizing. I will try this again and repost.
I am on a grapefruit kick and this is a wonderful and different way to enjoy grapefruit!! Never had warm grapefruit before and loved it!!! Added a bit less than 1 tablespoon and broiled it for a few minutes! Thanks SAHMchef!! :)
YUM, this is my favorite way to eat grapefruit. Before this I ate it cold with white sugar. I like the brown sugar and the warmed fruit, it adds a special touch the flavor is fantastic. I cut between the membranes to loosen sections prior to broiling so it's easy to eat with a spoon. I then squeeze the heck out of each half into my spoon and drink up the juice (leaving out any seeds that get squeezed out). Then I grab my bowl and slurp any leftover juice that's dripped! LOL, not very womanly, I know, but it's so good!
Yummy! Grapefruit made fancy! Like a warm fruit compote, perfect with brunch. Thanks for sharing the recipe!
