Caramelized Vanilla Spiced Grapefruit

Broiled grapefruit 

A friend of mine recently brought me a bag full of grapefruit picked from her tree in Palm Springs. There’s nothing like fresh grapefruit and this recipe takes it to a new festive level. Broiling grapefruit is quick and easy and can be increased to accommodate any number of servings which makes them a great brunch option. Serve them warm or at room temperature with some Greek yogurt and granola.

Serves 4.

2 large grapefruit

2 tablespoons  maple syrup or honey

2 teaspoons brown sugar

1 tsp. pure vanilla extract

¼ teaspoon cinnamon

1/8 teaspoon cardamom (optional)

1. Position an oven rack about 4 inches below the broiler and heat the broiler on high. With a serrated knife, cut the grapefruit in even halves. Using a small paring knife or a grapefruit knife, cut each section away from the surrounding membrane. Set the grapefruit halves in a shallow broiler-safe pan or a heavy-duty rimmed baking sheet). If necessary, trim a thin slice off their bottoms so they sit level.

2. In a small bowl, stir together the pure maple syrup or honey, brown sugar vanilla extract and spices. Drizzle the mixture over the grapefruit halves. Broil until bubbling and lightly browned in spots, 5 to 7 minutes.

3. Remove from the oven and let cool slightly. Serve warm or at room temperature.
