Brown Sugar Baked Grapefruits
This is easier than toast. Grapefruit. Brown Sugar. Vanilla and optional candied ginger. Place in oven under broil and look what comes out? Pretty little cups of citrus sunshine.
3 grapefruits, cut in half with the a thin slice off the bottom so not to fall over
6 tablespoons of brown sugar
1 tablespoon of vanilla extract
6 pieces of candied ginger (or more if you love the ginge)
Preheat over to Broil.
Cut grapefruits in half. Using a serrated knife cut inside and around the grapefruit half as to loosen the fruit.
In a small bowl mix vanilla and brown sugar. Place approximately a tablespoon over each grapefruit half. Place on a baking sheet and broil for 5-10 minutes keeping a close eye as not to burn but to lightly brown.
Remove from oven and place a piece of candied ginger in the middle. Let sit at room temperature for 15-30 minutes (this isn't essential but lets the flavours saturate).
