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)
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!
