1/2 cup fresh ginger, circular slices, peeled
2 (8oz) packages cream cheese, room temperature
5 oz sugar
1 tbs ground ginger

Recipe Directions for Ginger and Grape Fruit Cheesecake

  1. For crust:

  2. Position rack in center of oven and preheat to 350F.

  3. Butter 9-inch springform pan with 2 3/4-inch-high sides.

  4. Blend graham crackers and sugar in processor to coarse crumbs.

  5. Add 1/2 cup butter.

  6. Blend until crumbs hold together; press onto bottom and up sides of prepared pan.

  7. Bake crust until beginning to color, about 15 minutes.

  8. Cool.

  9. Reduce oven temperature to 325F.

  10. Stack 3 long sheets of 18-inch-wide foil on work surface.

  11. Place cake pan in center.

  12. Fold foil snugly up sides of pan.

  13. For filling:

  14. Bring cream and fresh ginger to simmer. Remove from heat; cover.

  15. Steep 30 minutes.

  16. Strain cream.

  17. Combine Grape fruit juice (I use sections & squeeze them in the pan) with sugar and heat until a thick syrup consistency. (You will have to strain the fibrous material if you cook in whole sections.) Set aside.

  18. Using electric mixer, beat cream cheese in large bowl until smooth.

  19. Beat in sugar, ground ginger, vanilla, and salt. Add eggs, 1 at a time, beating well.

  20. Gradually beat in strained cream.

  21. Transfer to prepared crust.

  22. Place cake pan in large roasting pan.

  23. Pour enough hot water into roasting pan to come halfway up sides of cake pan.

  24. Place cake in water bath in oven.

  25. Bake cake until gently set, browned on top, and beginning to crack around edges, about 2 hours.

  26. Remove from water.

  27. Remove foil.

  28. Place hot cake, uncovered, in refrigerator and chill overnight.

  29. Do ahead. Can be made 2 days ahead. Keep cake chilled.

  30. For topping:

  31. Line large plate with several layers of paper towels.

  32. Cut all peel and pith off grapefruits.

  33. Working over bowl, cut between membranes to release segments; place on paper towels to drain.

  34. Cover with additional paper towels, pressing to absorb excess liquid. (I cut slices in half length-wise.)

  35. Do ahead. Can be prepared 8 hours ahead. Chill, changing towels as needed.

  36. Cut around crust.

  37. Remove pan sides.

  38. Spread syrup over top; top with grapefruit.

  39. Do ahead. Can be made 1 hour ahead. Chill.
