Grapefruit Compote Recipes


Grapefruit Compote

3 yellow grapefruit (or red)
1 and 1/2 cups water
3/4 cup granulated sugar
3 mint sprigs
Cooking Instructions:
Remove the zest of half of one grapefruit and set aside. Peel and segment the grapefruits with a knife. Remove the seeds and the white pith. In a saucepan over medium-high heat, combine the water, sugar, 3 mint sprigs, and the zest. Bring to a boil, stirring to dissolve the sugar. Add the grapefruit segments, reduce the heat to low and simmer until the segments have softened but still retain their shape, about 20 minutes. Remove from the heat and discard the zest. Let cool to room temperature, then cover and refrigerate overnight.
Blood Orange and Grapefruit Compote

1/4 cup sugar
2 tablespoons grenadine
1 tablespoon thin slices fresh ginger
4 cardamom pods, crushed
1 piece (2 in. long) vanilla bean
6 blood oranges (4 oz. each)
3 Ruby grapefruit (12 oz. each)
Cooking Instructions:
In a 1 1/2- to 2-quart pan over medium-low heat, stir sugar, grenadine, ginger, cardamom pods, vanilla bean, and 3/4 cup water until sugar is dissolved. Simmer, stirring occasionally, for 15 minutes. Remove from heat; let stand 30 minutes. Meanwhile, using a sharp knife, cut off and discard ends from oranges and grapefruit. Carefully slice off peel and outer membrane, following the curve of the fruit. With your fingers or the knife, gently pry sections of fruit from inner membranes and place in a shallow bowl; discard membranes. Pour syrup through a fine strainer into bowl with citrus segments; discard spices. Cover and chill for at least 1 hour or up to 1 day.

6 pink grapefruits
3 blood oranges or 1 1/2 navel oranges
1 pomegranate
Cooking Instructions:
In a saucepan bring white wine, Sherry, honey, and sugar to a boil, stirring until sugar is dissolved. Transfer syrup to a heatproof bowl and chill until cold. Cut peel and pith from grapefruits and oranges and cut fruit into sections, discarding membranes. Halve pomegranate and squeeze gently to yield seeds with juice. Divide citrus sections, pomegranate seeds and juice, and wine syrup among 6 dessert bowls and chill, covered, at least 15 minutes and up to 1 hour. Stir compote before serving.
Ruby Grapefruit Compote
1/2 cup water
1/4 cup honey
Zest from 1/4 grapefruit, peeled in large strips, pith removed

2 navel oranges
1 tablespoon grenadine or sweet vermouth
Cooking Instructions:
Combine the water, honey, zests, ginger, cinnamon, and allspice berries in a heavy saucepan and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer, until cinnamon is unfurled and mixture is aromatic, about 10 minutes. Strain. Meanwhile, cut peel and white pith off the grapefruits and oranges with a serrated knife. With a sharp paring knife, cut between the membranes, catching any juices in a bowl, to release segments. Add the juices to the honey-spice mixture. Put the fruit segments in a bowl. Pour the hot liquid over the citrus, add the grenadine or vermouth and stir to combine.
