what a day for grapefruit brûlée

I woke up to 10° this morning. I’m unimpressed February. I want warm. I want tropical. I want citrus hues… But all I have is ice and the meagerest amount of snow. And then I thought of this.

What a day for Grapefruit Brûlée! Its summer and citrus and warm and crunchy sweet. Its good and bad all at once, and smells amazing as the sugar caramelizes onto the grapefruit’s flesh. And it couldn’t be easier to make:

Ingredients

  • 2 grapefruits, halved crosswise
  • 4 tablespoons raw sugar

Preparation

  • Trim 1/4–1/2″ of peel from bottom of each grapefruit half to stabilize the fruit and prevent it from rocking back and forth. Place grapefruit, cut side down, on paper towels to dry for 5 minutes. Invert grapefruit and sprinkle 1 Tbsp. sugar evenly over exposed flesh of each grapefruit half. Using a kitchen torch, heat sugar until melted and beginning to turn dark amber.
  • Alternatively, preheat broiler. Transfer grapefruit, cut side up, to a rimmed baking sheet lined with foil. Broil grapefruit, watching closely to prevent burning, until the sugar is melted and beginning to turn dark amber, about 8 minutes. Let grapefruit cool before serving.
