Banana’s flambé

  • Banana’s either quartered or sliced – 3.  They need to be free of brown spots and slightly on the green side of ripe.
  • Lemon juice from 1/2 lemon
  • Organic butter – 1/2 stick
  • Natural brown sugar – 1/2 cup
  • Rum or whiskey – 1/4 cup

Melt the butter and combine the lemon juice and brown sugar in a copper sauce pan.  Mix and then carefully add the banana without breaking.  Have two flat bowls ready on the dining table or bar.  Heat for 2 minutes without cooking the banana soft.

Add the liquor.  Check proper clearance above the stove for flame and light with a BBQ lighter.  The blue flame is beautiful and sure to bring a wow.  It normally will extinguish itself quickly but be ready to blow on it gently if it doesn’t.
