Baked Grapefruit

Baked Grapefruit -

My friend recently told me how much she loves baked grapefruit. Baked grapefruit? Why not.

I gave it a try last night and followed her directions:

I halved one grapefruit and scored around the membranes. Then I drizzled honey over the top and added some cinnamon. I was told you can use syrup or sugar in place of the honey as well. I popped it in the oven at 400 degrees F for 15 minutes.  I was told that the grapefruit would come out caramelized however mine did not. Maybe if I would have left it baking for another 5 minutes or so it would have but the juices were running on the bottom of the oven and I didn’t want to wait any longer.

Typically I only eat grapefruit because I feel it is a healthy option, not so much because I enjoy the taste. My preferred way to eat a grapefruit is in a juice form. However, baking the grapefruit gave it a new dimension. It was very enjoyable eating it warm and a some of the harsh bitterness had subsided, which was a pleasant surprise.  My husband and daughter really enjoyed eating it this way and if nothing else, it makes the house smell fantastic.

    I haven’t had a grapefruit in years! But my daughter loves them,surprisingly. We’ll have to try this together sometime.

    I can’t believe this is the first I have heard of this. I seriously can not believe it.

    I’m doing this as soon as I can find a spare moment to get to trader joes and get a grapefruit.

    Thanks Steph!
