Category: Fruit

 Ingredients List

  • 2 lg Pink grapefruit
  • 3 lg Navel oranges -- or
  • Other seedless variety
  • 1 Lemon
  • 1 Lime
  • 1/2 c Honey
  • 1/4 c Orange liqueur, such as --
  • Grand Marnier OR
  • 1/4 c Orange juice
  • 1/3 c Dark brown sugar -- packed
  • Firm

 Directions

1- Any time up to 24 hours ahead, use a small, sharp knife to remove both
the skin and pith (white part) from the grapefruits and oranges. Using a
serrated knife and starting at the stem end, cut the fruit crosswise into
1-inch slices. Cut each slice in half. If the grapefruit is very large,
cut the slices into quarters. Layer the slices in an ovenproof baking dish
~ about 9"x13". 2- Using a zester or grater, remove the zest (the oil-rich
outer rind) from the lemon and lime. Place the zest in a mixing bowl and
add the juice from both the lemon and lime. Mix in the honey and liqueur or
orange juice. Pour this mixture over the fruit and allow it to soak for at
least 1 hour at room temperature or up to 24 hours in the refrigerator
covered with saran. Remove from the refrigerator 1 hour before cooking. 3-
Preheat the broiler to medium with the rack in the upper third of the oven.
Gently spoon any liquid that has gathered at the bottom of the dish over
the fruit and sprinkle the brown sugar over the top. Broil for 2 to 3
minutes or until the sugar has just melted and the fruit is warm. Do not
overcook or the fruit will lose all its liquid and toughen. 160 calories, 1
