Grapefruit and Salt?
A friend had mentioned that his grandfather liked his grapefruit with salt? Does anyone else do this?
I put salt on my tomatoes - makes the sweetness come out (just like putting a dash of salt into sweets (cookies /cakes)).
I HATE grapefruit. Can anyone tell me why one might do this?
I have grapefruit in sections that are entirely peeled. If it is a little sour, a little salt sprinkled on the sections somehow makes them sweeter. Give it a try -- you may like it.
I love a sprinkle of salt on grapefruit wedges. I also like minced habaneros and ground black pepper on fresh melon chunks.
Growing up, we salted grapefruit, apples, oranges and watermelon. Don't know why we didn't salt other melons, though. I don't salt any of those today.
