Grapefruit From time to time we love to check in with the Williams-Sonoma blog taste for a dose of beautiful food photography not to mention helpful tips, recipes, and insider know-how. When we stumbled across this recipe for Ruby Grapefruit Sorbet, we had to share it. Not only is it simple (three ingredients) but the color is just gorgeous, ideal for serving between courses and impressing your undoubtedly-sophisticated dinner-party guests. This treat is perfect as a winter pick-me-up or bookmark it now and make it later, as a celebration of spring. Ingredients 1 1/2 cups fresh grapefruit juice 1 1/3 cups superfine sugar 1 large ruby or pink grapefruit (makes 1 quart) 1.
