    Jim Davis from Harris Teeter demonstrates how to peel a grapefruit.

    Jim Davis: Hi! I'm Jim Davis for Harris Teeter. I'm going to show you now how to peel a grapefruit. This is a beautiful Ruby Red Texas grapefruit. We want to cut off the bottom. Look at that. Then we are going to cut off the top, like that. Put it down, we're going to take our knife; we go right down along between the white part of the skin and the meat of the grapefruit. Take it right down like that, all the way around.

    If you've got a very sharp knife, it makes the job much, much easier. This is a very sharp knife. I find that it's much safer to keep my knife sharp. Never let them get dull. When I keep them sharp they go where I want them to go.

    Then we just pick it up and we take our knife and carefully trip off the pieces that we missed as we peeled that grapefruit.

    That's how you peel a grapefruit. Up next, how to slice a grapefruit.
