Review:

Florida grapefruit is ripe for recipes
By Janet K. Keeler, Times Lifestyles Editor
In Print: Wednesday, January 20, 2010

I am one of those people who doesn't think it's a curse to have a grapefruit tree in my yard, no matter how much fruit it bears. Ours is a Ruby Red, and the brilliant color of the fruit is equally matched by the aroma and taste of the sweet-tart-juicy flesh. The recent cold snap brightened the sweetness. They are perfect.

But I do get tired of grapefruit juice and halves of crimson in the morning. And, unfortunately, I am the only grapefruit eater in my family. Those warnings about grapefruit interacting negatively with some prescription drugs is a reality in our house. Several drugs that treat high cholesterol, and other maladies, are not as effective when taken with grapefruit juice. (For more information about grapefruit-drug interactions, go to peoplespharmacy.com.)

Shame, isn't it, because grapefruit is generally a healthy food. Lots of vitamin C half a cup contains 80 percent of the recommended daily allowance plus low in calories and no fat. And when you've got it growing in your yard or that of a generous neighbor, you can't beat the price.

Delicious Grapefruit Recipes, a new cookbook from Seaside Publishing of St. Petersburg, compiles a wide range of recipes for grapefruit lovers, or people with a tree full of fruit, be they Ruby Reds or white-flesh Duncans. The book is written by longtime New Jersey food editor and writer Patricia Mack, who has vacationed in Florida for years and now spends half the year in Cocoa. The recipes show the versatility of grapefruit, including using the juice or fruit in salads, sauces, pies and baked goods.

Mack wrote the book from her sunporch while gazing at her lovely, laden grapefruit tree. The fruit has a lot of seeds in it, so it's been around for a very long time, she says. The grapefruit you buy in the store these days has been developed over time to have few seeds.
That acidity makes grapefruit perfect for barbecue sauces and marinades. Salt makes grapefruit sweeter, too, so its flavor is accentuated in salads when paired with salty nuts or tangy vinegar. --St.Petersburg Times
