The grapefruit has been a breakfast staple and a favorite food since it was first brought to America in the 1820’s. One deliciously sweet and bitter grapefruit will yield 2/3 cup of juice! Full of vitamin C and antioxidants, grapefruits have wonderful health benefits, including: improving skin, boosting metabolism reducing inflammation, and lowering the risk of heart disease.
Grapefruits are delicious on their own but are also wonderful juiced or added to a salad. The juice can also be used to create flavorful vinaigrettes and marinades. Get creative!
If consuming within a week, keep your grapefruit on the counter at room temperature. To extend the shelf life, store in the refrigerator. For the best flavor and juiciness let the grapefruit come to room temperature before eating.
