Ingredients

  • 2

    pink grapefruits

  • 5

    tablespoons honey

  • 3

    cinnamon sticks, broken in half

  • 4

    Golden Delicious apples

Directions

Using a sharp paring knife, cut peel from 1 grapefruit, avoiding white pith. Cut peel into 1/4-inch-wide strips; set strips aside. Cut pith from grapefruit. Cut and discard peel and pith from second grapefruit. Then, working with 1 grapefruit at a time, cut each section of fruit away from membranes, cutting as close to membranes as you can; place sections in a bowl. Squeeze juice from membranes into a medium saucepan; add reserved peel, 3 tablespoons honey, 4 cups water and 2 pieces cinnamon. Peel apples, then, from bottom side, leaving top 1/4 inch of fruit intact, core apples; using a paring knife, carefully clean out seeds. Put 1/2 tablespoon honey into cavity of each apple, then add 1 section grapefruit and 1 piece cinnamon. Bring water mixture to a boil; remove from heat. Add apples, cavity-side up, and cover with a round of parchment paper. Return water to a boil, then reduce to a simmer and cook until apples are tender, about 12 minutes. Using a slotted spoon, transfer apples to serving plates. Garnish with remaining grapefruit sections. Serve immediately.
