Peach Berry Flamb'e

Last night our friends M and D came over for dinner.
We took all of our food up to the pool deck and ate alfresco overlooking the city of Atlanta.
What a special night it turned out to be with wonderful friends!
After that, we went back downstairs for dessert.
I wanted to make use of those yummy berries that we hand picked.

I made
Peach Berry Flamb'e.

and.  It was really fun!

here's how it went.

this is what I used.  Blackberries, blueberries, raspberries, and peaches.

I melted 3 TBS of unsalted butter and 3 - 4 TBS light brown sugar.

I sautéed JUST the peaches first (about 3 min.)

Then I threw in the rest of the berries.  I sautéed those for a couple of minutes.

I then poured in about 1/4 cup of Rum

Using a grill torch, I lit the whole thing on fire.
note:  although mine was less than exciting, be VERY careful doing this.  Especially if alcohol is involved.  As in, if you've consumed a lot of alcohol. 

It's hard to tell but there is a low flame sweeping across the pan.

Serve with vanilla bean ice cream.
Y'all, this was delicious.  I am serious.  It is a "must try"!

Enjoy with friends!!!

Have a wonderful day y'all!

1/2 cup blackberries
1/2 cup blue berries
