Grapefruit is a classic for breakfast! Wash fruit well before cutting it. Simply cut in half to see the beautiful fruit inside. Run a sharp knife between the fruit and the pith to loosen the fruit, and then use a narrow spoon to wedge out the pieces! There are special grapefruit spoons with serrated edges to make it easier, but you can use a regular spoon too.
Preparing grapefruit supremes (i.e. exposing the flesh of the fruit) is very similar to how you would prepare orange supremes. To separate segments without the fibrous pith for salads or savoury dishes, use a sharp knife to cut the top and bottom of the grapefruit. Then pare the skin off, cutting away the pith and exposing the fruit.
You could also cut grapefruit into slices by cutting off the top and bottom, and paring off the pith. Slice across the fruit with a very sharp knife for beautiful, sun-shaped grapefruit slices to garnish on cakes or salads.
Alternatively, make your own fresh grapefruit juice! Depending on your taste preferences, you may want to add some maple syrup or sugar to add a touch of sweetness. Another idea is to blend in some orange or pineapple juice.
How to Freeze
Grapefruit supremes freeze well since the membrane has been removed. Store in an airtight freezer bag to add to smoothies for later! You can also freeze grapefruit juice in an ice cube tray to add to your favourite drinks later. This will both chill and add some flavour, without diluting your drink.
