5 Ways to Enjoy Grapefruit to Its Fullest


National Grapefruit Month isn't the only time you can savor the juicy fruit; you can eat the citrus all year long in a variety of different ways. Here are five ways to enjoy and cook with grapefruit.

  • Add a teaspoon of grapefruit zest to your baked goods. Try this technique next time you make muffins, cupcakes, pound cake, or even sugar cookies!
  • Add a few tablespoons of grapefruit juice to your basic powdered-sugar icing for added tangy flavor.
  • Try out the latest trend to hit the food blogs: broiled grapefruits!
  • Segment your grapefruit and add to winter salads for bright, juicy flavor.
  • And, of course, use freshly squeezed grapefruit juice in cocktails, like the Freshly Pressed, the Salty Dog, or grapefruit mimosas.
