M-J’s Version
Two cups of orange juice
One-third cup of honey
One-third cup of lightly toasted pine-nuts (pignolia, piñon nuts)
3 tangerines or clementines, sectioned and separated
5 grapefruit, cut into supremes (click here to see how) and cut into quarters
One-third cup of finely granulated sugar

Boil the orange juice for two minutes, and then add honey and pine nuts. Simmer until slightly thickened. Put prepared citrus fruit into a bowl and sprinkle it with a fine coating of sugar, lightly tossing the lot. 
Distribute the fruit among six stout glasses, then cover it with hot orange-honey-nut mixture. Serve either warm or cold. Chill for at  least two hours. Cinnamon or vanilla may be added to the hot liquid if desired. For a more colourful presentation, use pink grapefruit.
