  • 1/2 cup water
  • 1/4 cup honey
  • Zest from 1/4 grapefruit, peeled in large strips, pith removed
  • Zest from 1/4 orange, peeled in large strips, pith removed
  • 1/2-inch piece fresh ginger root, smashed
  • 1 (3-inch) piece cinnamon stick
  • 2 to 3 allspice berries
  • 2 large red grapefruits
  • 2 navel oranges
  • 1 tablespoon grenadine or sweet vermouth
  • Serving suggestion: 6 almond biscotti


Step 1

Combine the water, honey, zests, ginger, cinnamon, and allspice berries in a heavy saucepan and bring to a boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer, until cinnamon is unfurled and mixture is aromatic, about 10 minutes. Strain.

Step 2

Meanwhile, cut peel and white pith off the grapefruits and oranges with a serrated knife. With a sharp paring knife, cut between the membranes, catching any juices in a bowl, to release segments. Add the juices to the honey-spice mixture. Put the fruit segments in a bowl.

Step 3

Pour the hot liquid over the citrus, add the grenadine or vermouth and stir to combine. Serve the citrus compote with biscotti.
