What to do when you have a grapefruit tree...

...but don't really like grapefruit.

Take 1 medium-sized grapefruit and 2 small-ish oranges. Using a paring knife, remove the peel and pith and cut them into segments. Put the segments into serving bowls, scatter with fresh pomegranate seeds, and drizzle with a bit of almond syrup. (The kind that Torani makes for putting in coffee drinks. I used sugar free because that's what I had.) Serves 2.

Served this way, the bitterness of the grapefruit makes a pleasant counterpoint to the sweet and tart flavors of the other ingredients, rather than being overwhelming. Maybe I do like grapefruit after all.

I love grapefruit -- or rather, pomelo, a related fruit -- but can't eat it because I'm on statins.
