What can I do with them? No-one in the house actually likes grapefruit so what could I do with them?

Is there such a thing as 'grapefruit cake? or the like?

This sounds nice, I got it from here

Grapefruit Orange Cheesecake
2 cup crushed coconut cookies
2 teaspoons grated lemon rind
1/2 cup melted butter
For Filling:
2 grapefruit
3 oranges
3 eggs
2/3 cup sugar
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 cup orange juice
1-1/4 tablespoons gelatin
1/4 cup water
1 lb. cream cheese
1-1/4 tablespoons lemon juice
2 teaspoons grated orange rind
1 teaspoon grated lemon rind
2/3 cup cream

Mix together the crushed cookies, lemon rind and melted butter. Firmly press on the bottom of a 9 inch springform pan. Peel the grapefruit and the oranges and cut the segments into small pieces.

Separate 2 eggs and combine the egg yolks, the remaining whole egg, sugar, salt and 1 tablespoon of orange juice in the top of a double boiler. Place over simmering water and cook, stirring constantly, until the mixture thickens. Remove from heat. Soak the gelatin in the water for 5 minutes. Stir into the warm custard until dissolved.

Press the cream cheese through a strainer and beat with remaining orange juice, lemon juice and rinds until smooth. Beat into the custard. Fold in the grapefruit and orange pieces. Lightly whip the cream and beat the egg whites until they form soft peaks. Fold the cream and egg whites into the cheese mixture. Pour into the prepared springform pan and chill for several hours or overnight.

Find someone you don't like and present them to this person because 'eating a graepfruit before every meal burns the fat right off, you know...'

ALternatively, I think there's a recipe involving calves' liver and grapefruit which I remember a former flatmate of mine cooking. V eighties, but hey, the eighties are back!

liliac's recipe sounds amazing but too time consuming for me.

juice it, sweeten it/mix with crushed berries and make ice lollies for the kids?

grapefruit maremelade? add vanilla and slivvers of almond.

Yes. Agree with the rest of your household. Only one thing you can do with grapefruit and that's bin it. <revolting stuff>

Blend them up with a banana and some plain yogurt or milk and make them in to lollies.
