If you ask anyone that knows me, what's my favorite fruit and they don't say grapefruit that means that they don't know me well enough.
From the three types of grapefruits, white, pink and ruby, my favorite is the ruby red, right from the fridge.
Grapefruit was first noticed on Barbados in 1750 and got that name because it grows in clusters just like grapes.
Besides the fact that I love it's taste, grapefruit is low in calories, about 97 calories per fruit and it's rich in vitamin C, flavonoids, potassium and folic acid.
Other benefits from grapefruit are, the fact that it's pectin helps to lower cholesterol levels and also helps to normalize hematocrit levels(number of red cells in the blood).
I admit that sometimes I get frustrated when I have to separate the flesh from the white membrane to make my salads, but it's well worth going through that process.
For the last 5 years, my |Christmas Eve fruit salad is made out of grapefruits, grapes, oranges, pomegranate and my favorite liquor. Does anyone know the name of my favorite liquor?
