Pink grapefruits are the prettiest, but white grapefruits taste equally delicious. Serve with plain Balkan style or vanilla yogurt. If you like, you can omit the rum.

  • Credits : Holiday Celebrations: 2007


  • 3 grapefruit
  • 2 tablespoons spiced rum
  • 2 tablespoons amber rum
  • 1/4 cup packed brown sugar
  • 2 tablespoons minced crystallized ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon


Cut each grapefruit in half crosswise. Using grapefruit knife, cut around inside of rind and around each segment to loosen.

Arrange grapefruit, cut side up, in 13- x 9-inch (3.5 L) metal cake pan. (Make-ahead: Cover and refrigerate for up to 2 hours.) Drizzle with rum.

In small bowl, combine brown sugar, ginger and cinnamon; sprinkle evenly over grapefruit.

Broil, watching grapefruit closely and rotating pan if necessary to prevent sugar from burning, until bubbly and golden, about 6 minutes. Serve hot or at room temperature.
