Grapefruit with a boozy kick. What could be better? Very little, my friends. Very little.
Yes, I know. There are a number of recipes and approaches for baked grapefruit out there in the land of the interwebs. But over the past few months I took ideas from a few of them, melded them together, and now have this trusty standby that is, in my humble opinion, pretty amazing. Not something you necessarily want to have before driving off to work in the AM (though really, a lot of the small bit of alcohol cooks off - or occasionally starts on fire), but excellent for a weekend treat. And it's broiled, not baked, which makes everything all caramelized and amazing.
- 1 Grapefruit (color/type of your choosing, but the bigger the better)
- Sprinkle of cinnamon
- up to 1/4 cup brown sugar (to taste)
- a hearty glug of dark spiced rum
Turn on your broiler (or, for my British friends, your "grill"...)
Remove from the oven and carefully place in a bowl. If you like, pour some of the gooey carmelized juice/rum/sugar mixture that has no doubt collected in the pan on top of the grapefruit. Enjoy!
