This Broiled Grapefruit with Cinnamon and Honey is the perfect way to enjoy (in season) Florida Grapefruit. This sweet, juicy and totally healthy dish is perfect for breakfast or snacks.
I just want to start out by saying, this is a Kelsey approved recipe. That’s right, I got my two-year-old to eat grapefruit. She actually exclaimed after every. single. bite. “mmm yummy!” I must be dreaming right? I still can’t believe it. I’m going to have to ride this grapefruit train as long as it will last!
I really love these gorgeous ruby red Florida grapefruit. They’re so fresh and juicy. They’re in their peak season from January through March so NOW is the time to enjoy these gems! Florida grapefruit is the sweetest and juiciest grapefruit in the world guys. Not to mention, they’re an incredibly healthy food – full of essential nutrients like vitamin C, vitamin A, potassium and fiber. If you haven’t tried it, you are missing out! I love this grapefruit broiled. Warming the grapefruit makes the juicy pulp just swell and burst from all that juice – you can literally see how swollen it gets from all the juice.
While these Florida grapefruit may not be winning any beauty awards, they sure are winners in the taste category. The key to making these grapefruit so delicious, juicy and sweet are the fertile Florida soil and subtropical climate. The weather can take a toll on the fruit’s exterior, but the inside is where the magic is. Cut one open and you’ll see what I mean, gorgeous red citrus flesh full of juice and ready to eat!
I’m so glad I’ve discovered another fruit Kelsey will eat. The cinnamon and honey compliment the grapefruit so well. It’s like a flavor explosion in your mouth. These sweet and juicy grapefruit are a snack that I’ll never say no to. Enjoy!
