This classic brunch item tastes the best when prepared with sweet red grapefruit, preferably ruby red.

Yield: serves 4

Ingredients

  • 2 maraschino cherries, stemmed, and pitted
  • 2 red grapefruits, halved
  • 4-8 Tbsp. light muscavado sugar

Instructions

  1. Set an oven rack 4″ from broiler; preheat. Halve cherries, set aside. Trim the ends of grapefruits so that they sit flat when upright; transfer to a baking sheet, cut side up.
  2. Run a knife around edges and between sections of grapefruit to loosen. Sprinkle each half with 1–2 tbsp. sugar; place 1 cherry half, rounded side up, in the middle of each grapefruit. Broil until bubbling with caramelized sugar, 5–6 minutes.
