Grapefruit is a super-rich source of Vitamin C. It is much more potent than lemons and oranges and has proven to be useful in reducing weight, avoiding Type 2 Diabetes and so much more. It is especially beneficial during this Corona time, as it is rich in anti-oxidants and gives a much-needed boost to the immune system.

We went home for Diwali and this fruit was growing in abundance everywhere. I was amazed by seeing these gorgeous yellow balls hanging on all the trees wherever I could see. My husband’s aunt has several huge trees growing in her garden and she gave several of these ripe fruits. She said it is a lot of fun sitting in the sun and relishing this fruit.

Now, I am a big fan of citrus fruits, you would always see making recipes with citrus fruits like my Lemon-Blueberry cake, Lemon Rice, Lemon-Pistachio KalakandChocolate Orange cake, Orange-dill salad, Lemon Coriander Soup, and more. But it might surprise you that I don’t like grapefruits as much, I hate their bitter under-note and strong flavor. It leaves my tongue sore and it’s not a very pleasant experience. This is why I have started finding interesting ways to find eat grapefruit and found this exceedingly simple Baked Grapefruit with Honey & Cinnamon recipe.  Do give it a try and you might love it too.

  1. Grapefruit – 1
  2. Honey – 4-5 tablespoons

  4. Butter – 1 tablespoon
