"Strangely addicting" were the words my husband used to describe this. I tried this because I love the flavor of grapefruit, and I thought it turned out very well. Simple to make too. My only complaint would be the "look" of it... after it's scooped on you plate, its the same color/consistency of congealed fat. I think next time I might add a few drops of red food coloring to make it look more like a pink or ruby red grapefruit.
