Grapefruit-Campari Compote

This easy fruit dessert recipe maximizes the flavor of fresh red grapefruit with the addition of fresh ginger and a splash of Campari.

Real Simple DECEMBER 2001

  • Yield: 8 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 4 inches fresh ginger, scrubbed and sliced
  • 1/4 cup Campari
  • 6 Ruby Red grapefruit

Preparation

In a small saucepan, combine the water, sugar, and ginger and simmer over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, for 1 minute. Stir in the Campari. Cool and set aside.

Cut the peel and the bitter white pith from the grapefruit with a sharp knife. Working over a bowl to catch the juice, cut the grapefruit sections free from the membranes, keeping sections intact. Place in a medium bowl. Reserve the juice. Strain the Campari syrup and pour it and the reserved juice over the grapefruit sections. Cover and chill. Recipe can be made up to 1 day ahead.
