Recipe: Broiled Grapefruit

I’ve always had a love hate relationship with grapefruit. I want to like it, but they always tasted too tart for me. Even when they were sweet…they were still too sour. I won’t lie that I was a little bummed when I got them in my last CSA box, especially since it looked like a giant lemon (pun intended).

Little did I know there was a delicious way to make grapefruit.

*and you thought I was joking when I said I was ‘vacu-saving’ everything. Yes, I vacu-saved half a grapefruit and was able to eat it several days later and it hadn’t browned at all.

Turns out the trick to seriously delicious grapefruit is my toaster oven, more specifically the broil feature on the toaster oven.

The prep for broiled grapefruit is the same as any other grapefruit, using a sharp paring knife I cut out each segment.

Next I added a little vanilla sugar to the top. I tucked a few used vanilla bean pods in my sugar a while back so now all my sugar has a lovely hint of vanilla. It’s the greatest thing.

Lastly I add a few little bits of butter. Not much, just a touch.

Broil for about 12 minutes.
