This morning's breakfast provided that perfect pucker. The cranberries are macerated in a sugar syrup and combined with juicy grapefruit. This is a tart lover's paradise and a crisp and flavorful way to start the day. The cranberry syrup can be made ahead and stored in the fridge. You can also use the the grapefruit that is already peeled and sectioned in jars from your produce department, if you need a time saver. If you like tangy, but slightly sweet treats, you should try a Cranberry Grapefruit Cup.
