Broiled Grapefruit

This is my favorite winter cold remedy.  When I lived in Paraguay I got a nasty flu once and was taken to visit the local traditional healer.  After saying a secret prayer over my head, she harvested me a bag full of ripe grapefruit from her tree and told me to squeeze the juice and pulp from them at bedtime, heat it up, and drink it, and this would allow me to sleep at night.  Worked like a charm (maybe it was the prayer too though?)  and I still do it to treat a cold.  Sometimes I also heat grapefruit juice from a carton and drink that.

Slice a grapefruit.  If desired, drizzle with a little honey.  Turn your oven to broil and put the grapefruit under the broiler on a baking pan.  Broil until browned and caramelized.  It takes a little while, a good 10 minutes, so be patient.

See “Citrus with Chocolate Ganache”  to prepare the chocolate covered citrus pictured here.
