Caramelized Grapefruits with Maple Cream


Serves 4
2 pink grapefruits, halved
60 mL (¼ cup) brown sugar, packed
5 mL (1 tsp) softened Dairyland butter
1 mL (¼ tsp) ground nutmeg
125 mL (½ cup) Dairyland 35% whipping cream
15 mL (1 tbsp) maple syrup


1 Set a rack in the upper third of the oven, then preheat to broil.
2 Cover a baking sheet with aluminum paper, then add the four grapefruit halves, cut side up.
3 In a small bowl, combine the brown sugar, butter and nutmeg until the ingredients are moistened. Press a spoonful of brown sugar mixture onto the surface of each grapefruit. Broil 3 to 5 minutes, or until the sugar is melted and charred in spots. Remove from the oven and let cool.
4 In a large bowl, whisk the whipping cream until soft peaks form. Whisk in the maple syrup.
5 Serve the broiled grapefruits generously topped with maple cream.
