Author: Lisa Longley


  • 1 1/2 cups sugar
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 1 cup fresh grapefruit juice approximately two grapefruits
  • 2 tsps grapefruit zest
  • 8 TBSPs unsalted butter melted and cooled


  • Whisk together the sugar, three eggs, and egg yolk in a medium sized microwave proof bowl. Then whisk in the grapefruit juice and zest. Finally whisk in the butter.
  • Microwave at 50% power for about a minute. Stir, and put back in the microwave for another minute. Stir again and continue microwaving for one minute intervals until when you dip a spoon in, it forms a thick layer on the back of the spoon.
  • Strain it through a mesh metal strainer to remove the zest and refrigerate to cool. It will thicken up more as it cools. Store in the refrigerator for up to two weeks.
