Once upon a time women spent weeks, if not months, sectioning grapefruit, then eating it, savoring every bite. Why? Because The Grapefruit Diet was supposed to make everyone who tried it magically thin, 'bathing suit ready', and, best of all, the claim was that the grapefruit also helped burn fat! Magic! My guess would be that some people still go on The Grapefruit Diet, yet my hope would be that they also get in some exercise along with that citrus. Pink Slip Jam is on another Grapefruit Diet entirely: it's called "Clean Slate Jam" and, while it may not guarantee you a size smaller swimsuit, it will be delicious! In keeping with January, a month renown for making healthy choices, resolutions, & vows to 'eat better', we can think of no better combination than Ruby Red Grapefruit, House Spirits' Krogstad Aquavit, and some smoked sea salt. This is a jam you just may want to save for something special...it could be the base for a fabulous cocktail, a delicious glaze, or a marinade. Better yet, slather it on some toast with a little cheese, & indulge in your new version of The Grapefruit Diet, Portland Style.
