My parents and in-laws both spent their winter months in warm climates; one in Texas, one in Arizona. Grapefruit was plentiful and they both enjoyed making this pie in hopes of using up some of their many grapefruit. So if you have lots of grapefruit and don’t know what to do with them, give this pie a try.


  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 3/4 cups water
  • 2 Tablespoons cornstarch
  • 1 3 ounce box strawberry or cherry jello
  • 3 grapefruit, sectioned and strained
  • 1 9″ pie crust, baked
  • Whipped topping

Cook sugar, water and cornstarch until thick and clear. Add box of Jello and stir until dissolved. Chill until mixture begins to set. Add grapefruit sections and pour into baked pie shell. Chill. Serve with whipped topping.
