Peel like an orange
Here's the trickest part- separating the flesh from the rest of the fruit. It's easiest if you use your thumbs. Don't expect it to come off all in one piece either. My advice is to be gentle- squeeze too hard and there'll be juice in your right eye in NO time ;).
Now clean up any remaining white-stuff and pop it in your mouth!
It's a labor intensive process but worth it. I usually just sit over a trash can or paper bag and have at it. After eating a good juicy grapefruit I expect my hands to be sopping wet and a little prune-y. Making a mess with your food is FUN. Remember when you were a kid and you were told not to eat with your hands? That rule is OUT THE DOOR with grapefruit.
Let me know how you like it!
PS Feeling better today. The rest helped but the never ending list of errands is getting longer. EK.
