Grapefruits

This sour fruit adds citrusy brightness to breakfast, dinner and dessert. Grapefruits are a great source of vitamin C and antioxidants like lycopene, and have less sugar than other citrus fruits, like oranges. Fresh grapefruit juice is also a great addition to cocktails because it’s not overly sweet—it’s the perfect pair for tequila, bourbon and Campari. A citrus sauce goes beautifully with fresh seafood, and whole slices of grapefruit are a tasty companion for ripe avocado in summery salads. Whether you want to revamp a simple chicken supper or are looking for a boozy treat, F&W’s grapefruit guide has recipes for every occasion.

Grapefruit Granité with Mangoes and White Rum Mojito

Unlike traditional granita, which is stirred frequently as it freezes so that light ice flakes form, Jacques Pépin freezes his granité in a block until it is completely firm, then softens it in the fridge until it's slightly slushy before scooping it into bowls. The sauce for his light, tropical dessert is a riff on the mojito, the minty cocktail. More Frozen Desserts
