Here’s something I would like to learn to do before I die: eat a grapefruit.
I’m not joking; I have no idea how to do it.
No matter how hard and try or what technique I use, all I ever seem to end up with is a pulpy mess, sticky fingers, and about two mouthfuls of fruit. Plus, I’m certain it’s disgusting to watch.
I’ve tried the use-a-spoon-to-eat-a-half technique, the peel-like-and-orange-and-eat-the-slices technique, and even the chop-into-bits-and-salvage-what-fruit-you-can technique. To no avail.
And thanks to Fresh Direct’s new policy of including seasonal fruits and vegetables free of charge in every order, I’m staring at four new reasons to renew my efforts in accomplishing this goal.
Well, three. I massacred one of them this morning.
