1 9-inch pie


  • 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®


  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.)

  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.

  3. Spread grapefruit in the bottom of the baked shell, and pour gelatin over the fruit. Chill several hours or overnight.
