just grapefruit

Before anyone starts thinking that all we ever eat around here are cookies and cakes, I’ve decided to start some new types of post that I’m going to call “Just Fruits” and “Just Veggies” because, hey, don’t forget that yummies can actually be good for you, too.

Like grapefruit.

I love grapefruit.

Grapefruit is in season in the winter, but those picked too early on can be unpalatably sour. Try not to eat those. When selecting them at the supermarket, pick those that are heavy for their size. (This advice is also applicable to lots of other fruits. Especially melons. Mm… melons. I can’t wait for summer fruits!) Anyway, for more tips on picking good grapefruits, as well as on just what to do with them, check out these sites.

I might consider eventually picking up a set of grapefruit spoons one of these days. They have serrated edges that help cut through the segments — something that regular spoons can’t quite do without making grapefruit juice fly all over the place. It’s things like this that make me glad I wear glasses.

But don’t be afraid of exploding grapefruit juice. For the right grapefruit, it’s totally worth it.
