Recipe: Soupe du Pamplemousse
Melonasia's cold 'n' flu remedy. When you're sick, this beats drugs -- but it might make you drowsy anyway.
- 1 grapefruit, skinned and quartered
- 1 tbs honey or maple syrup
- immune-system-revving dashes of cinnamon and cayenne
Almost cover the grapefruit in water in a small saucepan; dash with spices if you will. Bring to a boil, then simmer until the sections of the fruit fall apart -- you can squish the fruit to help it break down into individual cells. Stir in the honey/syrup and drink hot.
Thank you for the painting of the grapefruits, Yolanda Sharpe.
