Oranges, limes and lemons always get the spotlight, but we’re all about the grapefruit this season. Its tangy, complex flavor and sweet-and-savory versatility make us want to cook (and bake) with the citrus from now until spring. Enter these 23 grapefruit recipes, which we plan on making all winter long.
