Citrus is in season. I am convinced limes, lemons, tangerines, oranges and grapefruits are nature’s way of bringing a little color and sunshine into the lives of people that have to endure a long, cold winter. Oh, and the smell of citrus…just heavenly!

I think pink grapefruit might just be my favorite citrus fruit. I think it is perfection as is, but sometimes when I want to spruce it up a bit I sprinkle it with super fine sugar and use a brûlée torch to make grapefruit brûlée. (affiliate links)

Grapefruit Brûlée and Broiled Grapefruit with Mint

Just like creme brûlée the melted sugar becomes shiny and glasslike and needs to be cracked with a spoon to eat! So easy, lovely and elegant, serve on a beautiful serving board and it’s perfect for a weekend brunch.

Another lovely and unique way to serve grapefruit is to sprinkle with sugar, place under the broiler and serve warm sprinkled with mint!
