Rio Star Grapefruit Crème Brûlée

You’ve never had crème brûlée like this! Grapefruit juice gives this sweet dessert a new layer of flavor. For a beautiful serving touch, top each serving with roasted chopped grapefruit.

Ingredients

  • 13 ounces freshly squeezed Texas Rio Star Grapefruit juice
  • 10 ounces of sugar
  • 18 ounces of heavy cream
  • 8 ounces egg yolk
  • Sugar for caramelizing
  • Optional garnish: roasted chopped grapefruit

Preparation

  1. Preheat oven to 275° F.
  2. In a medium saucepan, heat grapefruit juice, sugar and heavy cream until warm. Temper the liquid with egg yolk and strain.
  3. Pour liquid into ramekins and bake in a water bath until set with still-slightly wobbly centers. Chill until needed.
  4. To serve, sprinkle the surface of each ramekin evenly with a layer of sugar. Using a blowtorch or broiler, caramelize the sugar until golden.
  5. Garnish as desired with roasted chopped grapefruit.
  6. TO ROAST GRAPEFRUIT: Preheat oven to 450°F. Segment a grapefruit and remove seeds. Drizzle segments with agave nectar or brown sugar. Season as desired with your choice of allspice, cardamom, cinnamon, cloves, ginger, vanilla extract and/or rum. Bake for about 20 minutes. Chop for topping.
