Brown sugared grapefruit, under the broiler


When I was growing up, my grandparents had a place in Florida.
They went every winter, and every winter we could expect a big box in the mail.
Thinking about that now...how could the cost of shipping possibly outweighed the cost of the fruit?
Anyway, the big box was full of grapefruit, kumquats, and other citrus fruit, probably oranges, I think nectarines and maybe lemons?  We ate a lot of grapefruit.  I can remember my Granddad squeezing his half, in half to pour the juice in a cup.  I saw this idea on Pinterest, what a great invention by the way, and tried it out this morning.  It made for a great Friday treat.

1 Grapefruit, cut in half.
1 tsp brown sugar, divided.

sprinkle the sugar on the grapefruit and broil until the edges get a little brownish.

yum.
