My Grapefruits I picked some months ago have been stored in an outside fridge. Unfortunately the thermostat on this little fridge is sometimes unpredictable from being too cold (not always a problem) to not being cold enough. My poor beautiful grapefruits suffered both these conditions and so when I remembered that I still had some grapefruits left ( salvaged from being possum food) they were in a sorry state.
The man said "throw them out" ......his answer to most things - probably lucky I have survived this long! I hesitated - I wanted to give them a second chance - "they might still be OK inside" I said. He rolled his eyes, sighed and walked away.
Six made a nice glass full - I feel so much better now. Nothing wasted! Next year I might watch them a little more carefully in storage. I took the juice to have at work in my great new tupperware mug - not a drop was spilled in this airtight cup. My vitamin C for the day.
