Bon Appétit | December 2004
Yield: Makes 6 servings
1 pink grapefruit, peeled
2 large tangerines or Minneolas, peeled
3 navel oranges
1/2 cup dried cranberries
2 tablespoons honey
1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1 16- or 17.6-ounce container Greek yogurt
2/3 cup minced crystallized ginger
1/4 cup golden brown sugar
Additional dried cranberries
Break grapefruit and tangerines into sections. Cut grapefruit sections into thirds; cut tangerine sections in half. Transfer grapefruit, tangerines, and all juices to deep serving bowl. Using small sharp knife, cut all peel and white pith from oranges. Slice oranges into 1/4-inch-thick rounds, then cut slices into quarters. Add oranges and all juices to same bowl. Mix in 1/2 cup dried cranberries, honey, and cinnamon. Cover and refrigerate at least 1 hour. Mix yogurt and ginger in bowl. (Fruit and yogurt can be prepared 1 day ahead. Cover separately; chill.) Spoon yogurt atop fruit. Sprinkle with brown sugar and dried cranberries.
Greek yogurt, which is actually drained yogurt, has a luxurious texture similar to that of sour cream. Look for it at Greek markets, Trader Joe’s, and Whole Foods. Or simply spoon 1 quart plain yogurt into a colander lined with cheesecloth. Place the colander in a large bowl and let the yogurt drain in the refrigerator overnight.
