right everyone... NO LAUGHING :p

i am aware that this probably sounds completely and utterly ridiculous, but what is the easiest (least messy) way to eat a grapefruit? :eek:

my usual method of cutting it in half and spooning out the segments just results in sticky grapefruit juice all over me, my clothes, my hair, the table, my laptop (!!:eek:) etc

its not exactly urgent but i really would like some advice lol


i know im "special"... :8855:

I normally just cut it into quarters, and the quarters into half and just bite it off, and use the skin to hold onto.

Hey

This is one of the many reasons fruit bothers me lol it is too messy and too high maintenance

The way i deal with grapefruits is as follows

Cut in half
Take half i want and gently squeeze excess juice out into the sink so less messy
take a small sharp knife and slide around the edge of the segments in a cricle all round the half, then i also cut around the triangles so when i sit down ready to eat with a spoon they pop easily onto my spoon and into my gob

Hope that helps lol

I eat alot of grapefruit normally in bed for some reason:confused: and always get in a mess so I normally lay a towel over the bed spread put the bowl on top and then peel it like an orange. I don't like the white stuff around each segment (what's that called?) so I peel all that off too as I go along.

Looooove grapefruit.

I have half a pink grapefruit every morning and eat it like you do, just spoon out the segments. I do eat it with a tissue in the other hand though. My 2 year old ds laughs at the juice squirting everywhere...
