I wonder if you used a pommelo if it would be milder. Pommelos also have a super thick pith.

Pretty sure itโ€™s bitter because you left lots of skin on still when you peeled it. There were lots of little lines of skin left between where you used the peeler. The bitterness is quite intense from grapefruit so you have to make sure allllllll of the skin is gone

Try it again, but this time marinate it first.

There are some 1940s ration cookbooks. They have some very interesting recipes in them. I have some of the recipes that I can send to you, if you want to try them.

I wonder if some mushroom powder seasoning would help make this taste a little meatier?

What kind of nutritional value could it possibly have, though?

Im vegetarian so i would leave the egg alone but that looks amazing. I'm not sure texture wise but worth trying. I'm surprised I've never seen this before.

Emmy, I definitely recommend you check out Great Depression Cooking on YouTube. Sadly, the woman has since died, but I think youโ€™d enjoy her little recipes from her youth during the Great Depression.

as a child of cuban immigrants iโ€™m always taught to appreciate the amazing food choices here. also, we eat grapefruits all the time at home ๐Ÿ˜‚ mom likes to make candied grapefruit and we eat it with cheese :P yum
edit: i asked my grandma about this and she said she used to soak the grapefruit in mojo. itโ€™s basically marinade.

Try to make the famous pizzas found anywhere in Havana! There are tons of myths around them, like the "cheese" on them is actually cardboard. I think they were also invented during the Periodo Especial (the same crisis in the 90's when Bistec de toronja saw the light). Nowadays is still a very popular and cheap fast food option in Cuba.
If someone have an accurate recipe on this or more info about this pizzas, let us know. I'd love to make them by myself too!

this is so interesting. My parents used to do the same with pomelo peels. The pith on those are a lot thicker. They would soak it in water.

Congratulations your choice of hard times cookery! My area is WWII hunger and I have lots of resources for just that kind of information in rationed UK and Italy of the era. if you want to check anything out. Meantime, my friend from Appalachia talks of Flour Gravy which contains only browned flour, salt, bacon grease and milk or water and is served over biscuits.

I love grapefruit, but I can't eat it. I take Pravastatin for high cholesterol and grapefruit, even the juice, can make me deathly ill. Life sucks.

Maybe steaming it a little bit, and then breading and frying?

When you fry egg plant if there is a lot of seeds you have to soak it, or its bitter. So maybe a nice plain or flavored soak will help. Marinate it, but if it's a plain water soak remember to change the water a few times over a few hours of soak time.
