February is National Grapefruit month and as we miss all of the colorful stone fruits and berries of summer, we find reprieve in winter citrus. Take the tart grapefruit for instance, not only is it a hailed breakfast item, but it is a perfect meat marinade, salad topping, and vibrant dessert addition.
Did you know that the grapefruit is actually a crossbreed of the orange and the pomelo? It is rich in nutrients, is said to help promote clear skin, a healthy heart, a thriving digestive system, and more. The grapefruit may not be the most popular citrus, but we’re hoping to win you over with these ten grapefruit recipes.
