Broiled Fresh Grapefruit

This is a simple recipe for broiled grapefruit.
It creates a creme brulee sugary topping,
the sweet sugar hardens up and browns a bit,
making for a good contrast with the sour fruit.
You can use either white cane sugar or as
I did in this recipe some dark brown sugar.
The grapefruit segments separate from the peel
after the broiling is done nice and easy.
I've done this with big old Navel oranges too.

2 fresh grapefruit
8 tablespoons dark brown sugar

Preheat broiler to high heat.
Cut grapefruit in half and place cut side up
onto a foil lined baking dish or sheet.
Sprinkle about 2 tablespoons brown sugar
on top of each grapefruit half.
Broil on top rack about 6 inches from heat,
for about 10 minutes or until sugar has just
caramelized and the top has browned up some.
Remove from oven and let cool before using a fork to
easily separate the grapefruit segments from the peel.
