Flaming Cherries Jubilee
Submitted by: Mark Challamar
1 quart vanilla ice cream
2 16-oz. cans dark sweet cherries, drained;
2 Tbsp. cornstarch
2 Tbsp. orange flavored liqueur
2 Tbsp. brandy
Place drained cherries in a saucepan over low heat. Mix the cornstarch in the cherry
liquid and stir until dissolved. Pour liquid in with cherries and heat until
thickened. Pour the orange liqueur in with the cherries and stir. Just before serving, pour brandy over cherries and
light with a match. Allow blue flame to burn off and immediately spoon cherry
mixture over vanilla ice cream. My wife made this for my birthday the other day and
it was wonderful.
The Skinny: Use low fat frozen yogurt instead of ice
cream. The liquor is really not optional in this recipe unless you want to forgo the
flaming part. We are not aware of any edible ingredient that will produce flames other than some type of liquor.
