I did, this morning, but it’s something I rarely buy anymore. The three I have are from a fruit basket sent to our house last week but I didn’t get around to slicing one open until today. I know people on statins can’t have grapefruit because it interferes with the medication which got me to wondering if sales are down because it seems half the world takes statins. Not I, as witness the number I did on one half already!
It was delicious, the ruby red variety, sweet enough to not need a sprinkle of sugar. I can remember as a child eating grapefruit at least three times a week, the best part was squeezing the half once the pips were gone for all the good juice. I believe we even used the special grapefruit spoon with the jagged edges but if I still have one, I can’t find it right now. I managed just fine with a regular spoon, thank you very much.
Now back to my regularly scheduled coffee, Fox News, and the Wall Street Journal!
Just in: From Sound Beacher:
The Texas grapefruit from Pittman & Davis and the implements of destruction. The grapefruit spoons and the grapefruit knife.
MMmm, yummy, nothing added, just the delicious ruby red, with the proper tools you can get every bit of the citrus.
