Yields 1 serving

1/2 grapefruit and segmented with a grapefruit knife

1 to 2 Tablespoons brown sugar, you can eyeball it

a few sprinkles of ground ginger

Set the oven to broil and place a rack on the top shelf of the oven.  You want the grapefruit to be as close as possible to the broiler heat.

Halve and segment one half of grapefruit.  You may need to trim the bottoms of the grapefruit so it sits up straight.

Place in a broiler safe pan and sprinkle with brown sugar and ginger.  Place in the oven under the broiler.  Bake for 5 to  7 minutes, keeping an eye on it as it cooks.  Feel free to rotate the pan as the grapefruit browns.

Remove from oven and serve warm or at room temperature.  Be sure to squeeze all the juice out when you’re done eating.  It’s the best part!
