Fruit Flambes

  • 2 of any fresh fruit preferred, peeled, sliced and sprinkled with lemon juice
  • 2 tablespoons sweet (unsalted) butter
  • 2-4 tablespoons brown sugar
  • ¼ cup light or dark rum
  • 1 lemon, juiced

Melt the butter in a frying pan and add the fruit slices. Turn the fruit over when they become soft and slightly translucent. Add the sugar and rum. As soon as the sugar dissolves and mixture is hot, carefully light a match to the fruit. After the alcohol burns away, allow the fruit to continue cooking until the liquid becomes a golden syrup (2-5 minutes). Remove the pan from the heat and serve.
