2 grapefruits, halved crosswise

4 tablespoons raw sugar

a kitchen torch  (if you don’t have one use your grill or broiler to caramelize the sugar into a candy shell)


  1. Trim ¼” to ½” of peel from bottom of each grapefruit half to stabilize the fruit. Place fruit cut side down on paper towels for 5 minutes. Invert and sprinkle 1 tablespoon sugar over exposed  flesh of each half.  Using a kitchen torch, heat sugar until melted and dark amber.
  1. Alternatively, preheat broiler. Transfer grapefruit, cut side up, to a rimmed baking sheet lined with foil.  Broil, watching to prevent burning, until the sugar is melted and dark amber, about 8 minutes.
  1. Let grapefruit cool before serving.
