Grapefruit Alaska
 
a spectacular dessert good to serve after a rather 
heavy dinner. the tartness of the grapefruit serves 
to give it the lightness one seeks after a heavy meal. 
 
3 large  grapefruit
6 Tbsp  california white port for other dessert wine.
3 small  scoops vanilla ice cream
2   egg whites
1 tsp  sugar
pinch  of salt
 
cut grapefruit across 1/3 from stem end. with a sharp knife, 
loosen each segment from membrane. cut membrane loose from 
bottom of fruit; remove. in each cavity formed, place a scoop 
of ice cream; pour over 2 tablespoons wine. 
 
beat egg whites until stiff but not dry; add salt and sugar. 
top each fruit with 1/3 of the meringue. ( be sure edges are 
sealed with meringue, and top is well covered. bake in moderately 
hot oven (400 degrees) for 3 to 4 minutes or until meringue is 
nicely browned. serve immediately. 
 
note: this is not only delicious, but spectacular...a dessert 
to delight your guests. it's quite easy to make. grapefruit may 
be prepared in advance, with the wine added, then stored in 
refrigerator, covered. when ready to add ice cream and meringue, 
first stir the grapefruit segments gently to blend the wine flavor 
throughout.
