One of the glories of our Rio Grande Valley autumns is the harvest of the Ruby Red grapefruit. They are what every little grapefruit should aspire to be. Sweet, juicy and deep red on the inside, blushing like a peach on the outside. Use them for your pie if you can find them.
Learning how to section a grapefruit is vital for the success of this recipe. Simply slice off the top and bottom of the fruit, so it is flat on both ends. Then, carefully cut away the remaining peel by slicing from top to bottom. Slice away any of the white pith. Once the thick peel is removed, cut the section away from each membrane wall. Keep practicing, and you will be able to whip up a grapefruit pie in no time!
And don’t be afraid to substitute a store bought pie shell, instead of pre-baking one at home. The filling is what people notice about this pie. However, do take the extra step of making the homemade strawberry glaze. You’ll find yourself licking the spoon, the saucepan and any spare drips, as it is so good!
