Grapefruit recipes - 6 recipes

By Laurapackham

There was one fruit tree that actually grew in the arid Australian desert town, where I lived when I was a young girl. Just our luck, it grew grapefruit. Enormous yellow boulders, at that. We used to cut them on the tin fence and empty the sugar jars onto them just to stomach the sour taste. My mouth still waters as I think of them now. But I have since found a new appreciation for these bitter fruits. Now, come citron season, these bright weighty fruits brighten up a dull winters day with delicious recipes like; grapefruit tart, colourful salads and even creamy risotto.
