The idea seemed simple. It seemed pretty delicious.
Grape fruit. Sugar. Broil. Eat.
Simple, yes. Delicious, ehh.
I set out preheating the oven to broil, cut the grapefruit, and added a bit of sugar. The grapefruit was put under the broiler for 3-4 minutes...no caramelizing going on. I left it for a minute or two longer. Browning edges, no caramelizing.
I decided I was sick of waiting. Baby napping. Clock ticking. It was time to eat.
The grapefruit was warm, which I expected, but honestly, I now know that I prefer it cold. Broiling it also caused the fruit to stick to the skin. It was incredibly hard to remove with a spoon.
So while in the world of Pinterest, this seemed like a tasty, new breakfast treat, in the reality of my kitchen, not so much.
