Grapefruit, love it, hate it, red/pink/white, raw or baked... never had it? If you like it, what's your favorite way to have it? Do you add salt or sugar?

I love grapefruit, all kinds including juice but unfortunately I can not consume it because it interferes with my blood pressure medication .But once in a while I eat it anyway.

Fave way, halved w sections cut free w/ a knife, top w a little table sugar and eat. I drink a lot of grapefruit, too. Juicing 3-4 whole grapefruits with two sweet apples. So far, this has turned out just sweet enough every time.

I peel the grapefruit and remove the skin from each segment, then eat it raw without salt or sugar.

"In 1911, an Iowa woman calling herself "Gude Wife" wrote in to the "The Housemother's Exchange," a national advice column, to recommend salting grapefruits. "Salt neutralizes the bitter taste as well as the acidity," she advised. Others wrote in to back up this endorsement. "I think you will find that many Southerners always salt their grapefruit," wrote "M.B.L." from Philadelphia. "I am sure that if you once try it you will agree with me that it is good." In fact, salting fruit remains a regional practice alive and well in the South ... In Mexican and border cuisines, it is common to douse fruits (especially mango) with a combination of salt, chili powder and lime." Using salt on bitter and tart fruit is a bit like putting salt on a glass rim containing beer or another alcoholic beverage, because they are bitter too.
