Just plain healthy recipe...
A light and delicious Sparkling Grapefruit Pie flavored with strawberry gelatin, pink grapefruit and grapefruit juice in a tender pie crust.
1 9-inch pie crust
4 pink grapefruit
1/2 cup white sugar
1 tablespoon cornstarch
3/4 cup grapefruit juice
1 3-ounce package strawberry flavored gelatin
Peel grapefruit, removing all pith. Cut up into bite size pieces. Drain in a strainer for 4 or more hours. This can be done the day before. Collect the juice.
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.
Spread grapefruit in the bottom of the baked shell, and pour gelatin over the fruit. Cool.
