Grapefruits are just starting to come into season here, fresh figs have already made their appearance, and brandy, well, brandy is always in season, especially at my house. I actually zested just a little of the grapefruit rind and mixed that in with everything else. Smell a nice smell? Yes I did! I usually like to have fruit for breakfast, now I just have to convince myself that fruit with brandy is good for breakfast as well. To paraphrase a 70s commercial that won't get out of my head: Brandy, it's just not for after dinner anymore...

What a nice combination. I loved it! I ended my dinner with it last night. You know I have always loved figs but never really used them in my recipes. Well, yesterday I went out and bought some figs and I dusted off the brandy bottle. I cut down on the brown sugar as I usually don't use any sugar on my grapefruit. This is going to be the way to eat grapefruit at my house from now on.

I've been doing grilled grapefruit with loads of sugar (no ruby-reds in those days) for donkeys years and never thought of adding figs and BRANDY! Silly me - what we missed.Here's to grilled "Gralefrit". (To be followed by ACON AND BEGGS, no doubt. Good recipe, Miller.
