     Title: Broiled Plaquemines Grapefruit

When the weather chills, it means grapefruit are abundant. Fight the chill and the seasonal cold with this delicious recipe, highlighting the tart sweetness of these winter treats. Adding Louisiana raw sugar keeps this totally local. Off the sugar this year? Try agave nectar or honey instead. Grapefruit are gracing the tables of our wonderful Plaquemines Parish vendors, so stock up at market to serve this handy breakfast, snack, or dessert ready whenever the fancy strikes!



Preheat oven to broil setting. Using a paring knife, cut along sections and between fruit and rind, leaving fruit in place. Sprinkle sugar on each half. Place on cookie sheet under the broiler, cooking until rind begins to pull away and sugar is melted, about 3-5 minutes.
