Hello citrus! One of the bright spots of winter is the delicious grapefruit. I love starting my day off with this tart and tangy fruit. I usually sprinkle a little sugar on top and dig in; but when I saw the idea for grapefruit brulee in this month’s Bon Appetit magazine, I couldn’t wait to try it. Any opportunity to play with fire is just a splendid thing in my book.
All you need is a grapefruit, sugar, and a kitchen torch. Halve the grapefruit, sprinkle a little sugar on top, then melt the sugar with a kitchen torch to form a golden and crispy surface. VOILA- you have grapefruit brulee! It’s a great way to jazz up a cold winter morning.
