Grapefruit?

Do you all like grapefruit? If so, how do you eat it?

Pink Grapefruit is pretty delicious, though I always sprinkle sugar on it. I cut around the wedges to free them for eating, a habit I got from my Dad. For years, he'd meticulously cut grapefruit halves for the first part of our Christmas breakfast every year (for as long as I can remember). we still have it.

What about you? Leave a comment.

P.S. My mom's mom eats it with salt!

My mom cuts the sections, and so that is how I grew up eating it. I even have a set of grapefruit spoons (they are pointy to help dig out the cut sections). After you eat the sections, you of course squeeze out all the juice into a little juice glass to drink, first squeezing in half one way, then the other to make sure you get all the juice out. However, my family would pass out if you put sugar on our grapefruit! we like it sour. :)

Nowadays I actually prefer to peel the grapefruit and eat it like an orange in sections. I feel like I get more out of it.

We cut it in half and eat it just like that with grapefruit spoons. No sugar for us! :)

We cut them in half and put honey on them - as a kid we used white sugar, I guess now I'm less refined (ha ha).

I don't really care for grapefruit, even though it was breakfast for us occasionally growing up. My mom would cut through each little section first, then heat it in the microwave so it was slightly warm & drizzle honey on it (but not hers b/c she's allergic to honey). Then when we finished it, we would squeeze the juice out onto our spoons and eat it that way.
