When Riley first took a a bite, he had this look of horror on his face. "Why is the grapefruit hot, Mommy?!?" Then he declared, "Mmmm...cardamom. This is good." While I am still a fan of the slice-and-go method, my experiment was a wild success.
two large grapefruits, halved and the sections sliced from the membrane
2 T organic honey
1 t pure vanilla extract
pinch of ground cardamom
Set the grapefruit halves in a shallow broiler-safe pan. I used an enameled baking dish.
In a small bowl, stir together the honey and the vanilla extract. Drizzle the honey mixture over the grapefruit halves. Dust each with a bit of cardamom.
Broil until bubbling and lightly browned in spots, 6 to 8 minutes.
Remove from the oven and let cool slightly. Serve warm or at room temperature.
