making this tomorrow...

grapefruit, orange, and green grape compote
Nick and I are working on continuing "intentional healthy eating" so when I found this recipe,  I was more than excited.  As the addition of the sugar to the fruit will not happen, I'll have to figure out what to add to take away some of the bitter/citrus taste. (I really am not good at figuring out things like this when cooking.)  That being said, does this not look seasonally delicious?

Orange, Grapefruit & Green Grape Compote
Source: Gourmet 2003
  • 6 navel oranges
  • 2 large grapefruit
  • 6 tablespoons sugar
  • 1/2 lb. seedless green grapes (1 1/3 cups), quartered lengthwise
  1. Finely grate zest from 2 oranges and 1 grapefruit into a small bowl and stir in sugar. Massage with fingers to incorporate the zest and sugar together. Set aside.
  2. Cut peel, including all white pith, from oranges and grapefruit with a sharp knife, then, working over a large bowl, cut segments free from membranes, letting segments fall into bowl. Squeeze enough juice from membranes to measure 1/2 cup, then add to citrus segments with grapes and 3 tablespoons of the citrus sugar. Very gently toss the fruit — some of the pieces inevitably will fall apart, which is OK — with a large spoon, and serve with remaining sugar on the side.
