It’s easy to learn how to segment a grapefruit. And do you know what causes grapefruit to taste sour instead of sweet (and what you can do about it)? If not, read on!
This video and recipe is sponsored by Winter Sweetz. I love ’em and I think you will, too!
Did you know that when prepared properly, grapefruit is actually sweet and not sour?
It’s the pith that makes it sour. Which means that if you’re not sure how to segment a grapefruit (or do it in a way that doesn’t remove most, if not all, of the pith) your grapefruit might not be as sweet as you’d like. Soil and temperature have an impact on sweetness as well, which is why this time of the year Texas Grapefruit is your best choice. The grapefruit I’ve been enjoying lately (and what I use in my video) is by Winter Sweetz and it is perfectly sweet with a hint of zing (like citrus is supposed to taste)!
If you love grapefruit as much as I do and would like to try some Winter Sweetz, you can pick some up at WalMart through April. The best months for Texas Red grapefruit are Jan, Feb and March so it’s the perfect time to try some. You’ll be surprised at how sweet they taste!
So how do you segment a grapefruit? I’ve created a fun video that demonstrates the process for you! The video is nice and short plus at the end I share my favorite breakfast treat made with grapefruit. I really tried to show just how quick and simple it is to segment a grapefruit so I hope you enjoy it!
