In a "what a great sale" moment I bought a box of grapefruits but cannot eat one more for breakfast, any suggestions for what could be done with them?
There is a recipe for grapefruit sandwich cookies in Martha Stewart's Baking Handbook. It looks great, I keep meaning to make them.
Both epicurious.com and williamssonoma.com have very good recipes if you search "grapefruit."
This is kind of a family issue for me. My dear departed grampa used to shop as a hobby when he lived with us in his later years. He jumped on good sales and forgot he'd done so. At one point I discovered the downstairs extra fridge was full of nothing but grapefruit, as were the 6 shopping bags on the cellar steps....
I'm totally addicted to chiffon cakes, so I'd make a grapefruit chiffon cake. I use basically the same recipe as a standard lemon or orange chiffon cake, but substitute grapefruit instead and when I glaze it I make the glaze with powdered sugar and grapefruit juice and then sprinkle a bit of finely grated peel on top.
You could also make grapefruit curd.
We just got our shipment of Texas Ruby Red Grapefruit from PITTMAN & DAVIS. I store them 4 to a large size freezer baggie in the Fridge, and they keep perfectly for a month or more,until they get used up. They are delicious plain, but I am saving the recipes in my file.
I save the peel, and freeze it until I have enough. I make candied grapefruit rind. Everyone loves it with an after dinner coffee, and I tuck little bags of it into gift baskets. Sometimes I dip it in bitter chocolate.
