  • 2 Winter Sweetz Texas Red Grapefruit
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
  • Fresh mint finely chopped


  • Pre-heat your oven to 400 degrees.
  • Mix Cinnamon and Brown sugar in a small bowl. Set aside.
  • Cut the grapefruit in half and discard any large seeds. Using a small paring knife, cut between the flesh and the membrane to loosen the sections. Then place the grapefruit cut side-up in a baking dish.
  • Sprinkle each half with 1 tablespoon of brown sugar and cinnamon mixture.
  • Transfer the baking dish to your pre-heated oven and bake the grapefruit for 15 minutes.
  • Remove from the oven and let the grapefruit cool for about 2-3 minutes.
  • Then top each half with a sprinkle of fresh mint and enjoy.


Substitute your favorite sweeteners in place of brown sugar. Honey, agave, date or maple syrup work just as well.
