Fire and ice

Yield: 8 Servings

Measure Ingredient
¼ cup Honey; plus
1 tablespoon Honey
¼ cup Water
4 cups Ruby-red grapefruit juice; strained
1 Ripe papaya
¼ teaspoon Minced chili pepper
Serrana or jalapeno
1 tablespoon Chopped mint
1 tablespoon Lime juice

For dessert, top a scoop of grapefruit ice with a spicy fruit salsa.

1. ICE: Combine ¼ cup honey and the water in a large saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat. Cool.

2. Whisk in juice and transfer to a shallow 1½-qt. freezer proof container. Freeze at least 8 hrs.

3. FIRE (salsa): Peel papaya, halve and scrape out seeds. Cut flesh into l/2-in. chunks to make 1 ½ cups.

4. Combine half of papaya, minced chili, mint and lime juice in a medium bowl. Drizzle with 1 tbsp. honey and toss. Refrigerate 30 min., mixing occasionally.

5. To serve, add remaining papaya to salsa. Remove ice from freezer and chop into fine chunks using a sturdy fork. Place a scoop of grapefruit ice in a bowl or stemware glass and top with salsa.
