Plums flambé

Plums flambé!

I had to use up some plums, and made “plums flambé” for dessert.  Normally I do it with apples, but tried plums this time.  It is quite easy to make: slice plums, put in a pan, add butter and sugar and heat up.  Once it is warm you can flambé it with some alcohol.  I use dark rum (Mount Gay).  Fill a sauce ladle with the rum and heat it over a stove burner.  Once it is warm it will either ignite itself, or otherwise spill a bit on the flames and it will ignite.  For full effect dim the lights and pour over the plums in the pan!  Served with vanilla ice cream on the side.  Yum!
