I have a confession to make: I dont really like grapefruit. And this makes me sad. Dont get me wronggrapefruit is pleasing on many levels. Its pleasing to the eye with its bright red color, pleasing to the nose with its clean, floral scent and pleasing to the touch with its receptive flesh. But for me, its not so pleasing to the tasteI find it too bitter and it makes my face contort into unattractive shapes.
When I recently got my hands on some big, juicy grapefruits, I decided that I would have to recreate that grapefruit brule at home.

Its sweet enough to cut back some of the grapefruits bitterness without the grapefruit losing its essence. And as it only takes a few minutes to make, I think I just may have my new go-to winter-morning meal.
