Grapefruits are one of my obsessions this month, from warm grapefruit sake made to broiled grapefruit for breakfast or dessert. I’m skeptical about warm fruit, but pears and grapefruits have taught me that fruit actually tastes great when warm. Fruit sugars caramelize while cooking, which makes the fruit much sweeter. I often associate grapefruit with a bitter or sour flavor. Broiled grapefruit removes the bitters and replaces it with a juicy + decadent sweetness.
– Broiled Grapefruit –
Turn your oven to broil. Halve a grapefruit across its center, as if you were going to eat the grapefruit with a spoon. Rub with brown a tsp of brown sugar + spices. Place on a baking sheet lined with parchment paper and broil for 12-15 minutes, until lightly browned.
