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.

    • 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.

    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!

    I love grapefruit, but I also can’t eat it because of medication. Alas!

  7. 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.
