Grapefruit and oranges, at their peak around the holidays, are like \r\na beam of sunshine in the bleak midwinter. Here, a beautiful \r\nsalad of juicy jewel-toned segments swims in a bright simple syrup infused with the licorice notes of star anise.

Ingredients

  • cup sugar
  • cup water
  • 3 whole star anise
  • 5 large ruby red or pink grapefruit
  • 4 blood oranges

Directions

Dissolve sugar in water in a small heavy saucepan over medium heat, stirring. Add star anise and simmer 5 minutes. Let stand off heat 30 minutes.





Cut peel, including white pith, from fruit with a sharp knife. Cut segments free from membranes into a bowl. Squeeze juice from membranes into bowl.

Add syrup with star anise to fruit and juice and stir gently. Remove star anise before serving if desired.
