Grapefruit Brulee With Tarragon & Tarragon Crème Fresh

Serves 4


2 medium ruby red grapefruits, segmented and pithed
¼ cup tarragon sugar see recipe
1 tablespoon fresh tarragon, chopped fine
⅓ cup crème fresh
1 tablespoon ruby red grapefruit juice (reserved from segmenting the grapefruit)


Preheat broiler.  Arrange grapefruit in 4 shallow ovenproof dishes (individual tart dishes).  Sprinkle grapefruit wedges with tarragon sugar.  Place under broiler until sugar melts and grapefruit caramelizes and turns a dark color (careful not to burn!)  Broil for approximately 4 minutes.  Take away from heat.  Quickly mix crème fresh, tarragon and grapefruit juice and serve a dollop on top of broiled grapefruit dishes.  Serve warm.
