Baked Grapefruit

This is an odd little recipe that Kristi found on Pinterest.  Kristi has always been intrigued with the fact that I hate fruit and eat so very little of it.  About a year ago she convinced me to eat half a grapefruit every day for a week... longest week of my entire life.  I've never liked citrus fruit - especially oranges, nectarines, or grapefruit.  However, I do enjoy lemons and limes when it comes to cookings.  Anyway... I was visiting Kristi the other day and she just had to see if I liked this baked grapefruit.  

I was immediately hesitant.  Baking it didn't seem like it was going to help.  

Kristi took half a grapefruit, ran a knife around the sections, and put in on a lined pan.  She sprinkled the top with cinnamon and liberally caked brown sugar over the cinnamon.  

We put it in a 350 degree oven for about 18-20 minutes.  

This is what came out of the oven.  

I can't lie and say I enjoyed it - it still tasted very grapefruity!  But it was a definite improvement over a raw grapefruit :)  If you like grapefruit to begin with, you will love this easy, naturally, gluten free recipe.  It's fruit - so you can eat it for breakfast!  Or dessert I suppose.
