Lightly crush cardamom pods and cinnamon stick; place in saucepan along with 1 cup (250 mL) water, honey and lemon peel and juice. Bring to boil; reduce heat and simmer for 5 minutes. Add dried fruit; stir to coat. Cover and simmer, stirring occasionally, until puffed and tender, 30 minutes. Transfer to bowl; let cool. (Make-ahead: Cover and refrigerate for up to 4 days.)

Meanwhile, cut off skin and outer membranes of grapefruits. Working over dried fruit mixture to catch juices, cut between membranes and fruit to release sections into bowl; stir gently. Discard cardamom and cinnamon.
