Broiled Grapefruit With A Maple Sugar Glaze

I am very blessed to live in a place where citrus trees thrive.  I only have to walk out into my backyard to find lemons, oranges and grapefruit.  Our grapefruit tree is a bit of a phenomenon... it produces so much fruit we can't eat it fast enough.  We guessed that in a season, it produced well over a hundred grapefruits... and they are delicious.  I love eating them just as they are.  The other day, I did however want to mix it up a bit, and wanted to try them broiled.  They turned out really good, and it's super easy!

1 grapefruit, halved
pure maple syrup
turbinado sugar

1.  Set oven to broil.
2.  Brush the top of each grapefruit half with the maple syrup.
3.  Sprinkle with turbinado sugar.
4.  Place grapefruit halves on a cookie sheet and broil for 3-5 minutes or until the sugar is dissolved.
