Grapefruit has some really good stuff in it – like hesperidins and naringins – which can help keep blood flowing better, stop thrombus from forming, and even help prevent stroke in older people. So if you want to make it, just add the right amount of grapes and honey.
- Peel the grapes and get rid of the pulp – it’s best to leave the skin intact.
- Then, mix up some rock sugar and honey with the grapes, steam for a few minutes, and serve it.
- Just make sure to rub the grapes with salt to get rid of the wax.
