Peeling and Sectioning Grapefruit

When peeling and sectioning grapefruit to use in salads, it's sometimes difficult to remove the bitter white pith. An easy solution is to bring water to a boil in a saucepan; place the whole grapefruit in the water. Remove from the heat; let stand for about 5 minutes. With a tongs, remove the grapefruit from the water. When cool enough to handle, easily peel away the skin and pith.
