Sparkling Grapefruit Pie Recipe
- 1 (9 inch) pie crust, baked
- 4 pink grapefruit
- ½ cup white sugar
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- ¾ cup grapefruit juice
- 1 (3 ounce) package strawberry flavored Jell-O®
step 1: Peel grapefruit, removing all pith. Cut up into bite-size pieces. Drain in a strainer for 4 or more hours, collecting the juice. (This can be done the day before.)
step 2: Combine the sugar, cornstarch, and 3/4 cup juice in a small saucepan; if the collected juice does not measure 3/4 cup, top it off with water. Bring to a boil. Stir in strawberry gelatin. Cool slightly.
step 3: Spread grapefruit in the bottom of the baked shell, and pour gelatin over the fruit. Chill several hours or overnight.
