In the end, we really liked this. I think 1 cinnamon stick & 1 star anise would be sufficient; the syrup was really strong! I doubled the grapefruit ~ there was plenty of syrup; perhaps this could be cut back? I like how this can be made ahead! Thank you! Made for Grapefruit Tag in the Spain/Portugal Forum 6/12.
A lovely recipe! I used crystallized ginger instead of fresh but followed the rest of the recipe, delicious!
I cut this recipe in half for just the 2 of us, & now that I know how great it is, both in taste & presentation, I look forward to making it for overnight company! Definitely a winner no matter how you look at it! Thanks for sharing! [Made & reviewed in 1-2-3 Hits recipe tag]
Great recipe! The honey, ginger, cinnamon and anise were a perfect flavor compliment to the grapefruit. I served over some cottage cheese and really enjoyed this - thanks for sharing the recipe! Made for Fall PAC 2009
My kitchen smells wonderful! Great recipe - the syrup goes perfectly with the tart grapefruit. Thanks!
Yummmm! I halved the recipe and loved the syrupy gingery taste! Thank you Kate!
