Making Good Use of the Grapefruit Knife

The last of the Christmas gifts of fruit.

Starting the day off with refreshing citrus-  Ruby Red Grapefruit from Texas.

I don’t use it often, but dug out the old grapefruit knife to loosen the sections. The best part is squeezing all the juice into the spoon at the end.

  1. Yummy- years ago I would sprinkle Grand Marnier Liquor on it , a bit of brown sugar and pop them under the broiler..Ahhh more memories !


    • Aww that very thing happened just Sunday when my friend came to breakfast. I hadn’t known about it before and now twice in just a few days of each other. Sorry to make your mouth water.


  2. Adding a little bit of sugar to the ’empty’ half before squeezing juice into the spoon . . . one of the best treats ever! The pic is indeed mouth watering to behold!


  3. Lovely. My FIL has a special grapefruit knife and spoon for just such a purpose. He likes to put brown sugar on his, then microwave it for 60 seconds. I never saw it prepared that way before.


    • Sounds interesting. I wonder if the brown sugar enhances the natural taste or takes over?
      I’ve heard of the broiling them. I like my room temperature or a slight chill.


Always good to hear from you.....
