Table Talk Video: Sectioning a grapefruit

With a couple of gadgets, sectioning and eating a grapefruit can be made easy. Grapefruit knives can be bought at kitchen stores. One end is a traditional pointed knife and the other end is a double-bladed knife. The serrated double blade slips through the grapefruit membranes with one easy motion. The curved blade lifts the grapefruit wedge away from the rind. It is designed for right- or left-handed use.

Purchase grapefruit spoons in order to draw the last bit of juice and fruit from the rind. Don't limit this spoon to grapefruit; give it a try with oranges and other fruits that need to be scooped out.
