Our friend Marv travels to Texas for the winter. For the past three years he comes back the first week of March. He always has his truck full of goodies. He stays in Rockport, Texas and likes to travel to the Citrus Farms during is stay. He usually calls us while he is sitting on the beach, enjoying a fresh grapefruit and 80 degrees.
On his way home this year, he got stranded in Cameron, Missouri.
He has a enclosed truck topper and even brought along an electric heater to keep the fruit warm. Sadly, it got so cold all of the grapefruit he brought back to Cameron, Wisconsin froze.
He called while stranded in Cameron, Missouri. We had a little chuckle about that. He said "I am in Cameron." I said " You are home, YAY!"
"Nope, I am in Cameron, Missouri."
I told him never fear, I have an idea on how to save the grapefruit. I juiced it. I juiced 2 huge bags of grapefruit.
I placed the juice in wide mouth quart canning jars and froze it.
Just the other day I pulled one out to thaw to serve for breakfast.
Marv was so happy I was able to use the grapefruit.
