Every winter, when I was a kid, my grandparents would send us huge boxes of grapefruit from their trees in Arizona. I remember how excited I would get when the shipments arrived. The grapefruit were so big, pink, sweet and — most of all for me -- fun to eat. My Mother used to cut them in half and use a special knife to section them for me, and I lived for scooping out the sections with a spoon..
I loved the idea of trying this for my own family’s breakfast, but I wanted to kick it up a bit and came up with this recipe. Now that grapefruit are in season, I can buy tons of them at the farmers market for Kenya to enjoy every day. I add just a touch of agave or even some brown sugar and leave it for a few minutes under the broiler. This transforms regular grapefruit into a special morning treat -- or even dessert!
