Grapefruit with honey

That's it. Two happy ingredients. 

When life gives you lemons you make lemonade. Lemons are awesome, you just have to add a little sugary love to bring out its natural goodness. Same goes for Grapefruits. When smothered in yummy honey, this pink citrus is just delightful. 

Depending on the bitterness of the grapefruit, I'll give it a sprinkle of sea salt. Salt is magical like that. It will enhance the beautiful sweetness of the fruit and mellow its bitterness. The best and easiest way to enjoy a grapefruit is cut in half. Use a paring knife to cut along the edges of inner skin making for adorable individual triangles. A spoon with a sharper point will get the most rosy flesh. When you're done, you'd be a fool not to drink the mother of all juices waiting for you in the citrus skeleton.

With the holidays long gone, winter has lost its pizazz....and we still have at least one more month of cold grey coldness with a guarantee of even colder to come. Grapefruit and honey is like a bright bowl of sunshine for breakfast. Yum, sunshine.
