The grapefruit is a popular subtropical citrus fruit with a thick rind and a strong sweet, tart, and bitter flavor profile. In general, darker red varieties of grapefruit are sweeter, with less sharp, bitter bite. The interior flesh is segmented similar to other citrus fruits. Grapefruit is traditionally thought of as a winter citrus fruit but you can find it available year round as it is now grown all over the world. Although most well known as a low calorie, high-fiber staple for a healthy diet, grapefruit are starting to be used in a variety of new ways. Most commonly, it can be sliced up and added to salads. Grapefruit works surprisingly well in desserts. Use freshly squeezed juice to make ice cream or sorbet, or you can candy the peel, chop it an sprinkle on top of cakes. Grapefruit is also popping up more on cocktail lists, used to add refreshing fruit notes to many traditional drinks.
