    Title: Classic Cherries Jubilee
    Categories: Fruits, Citrus, Booze, I scream
    Yield: 6 servings

    1/2 c White sugar
    2 tb Cornstarch
    1/4 c Cold water
    1/4 c Orange juice
    1 lb Bing or other dark, sweet
    - cherries; rinsed, pitted
    1/2 ts Fine grated orange zest
    1/4 ts Cherry extract
    1/4 c Brandy
    3 c Vanilla bean ice cream

    Whisk together the sugar and cornstarch in a wide
    saucepan. Stir in the water and orange juice; bring to a
    boil over medium-high heat, whisking until thickened.
    Stir in the cherries and orange zest, return to a boil,
    then reduce heat, and simmer for 10 minutes. While the
    cherries are cooking, spoon the ice cream into serving

    Remove the cherries from the heat, and stir in the
    cherry extract. Pour in the brandy, and ignite with a
    long lighter. Gently shake the pan until the blue flame
    has extinguished itself. Spoon the cherries over the
    bowls of ice cream.

    NOTE ON FLAMBEING: The flames may get quite high when
    flambeing, so pay attention to anything flammable above
    and around where you ignite the cherries. When the
    initial large flame has died down, a small blue flame
    will continue to burn for several seconds. Shake or stir
    the cherries gently to expose more alcohol to the flame,
    being careful that they do not burn. The goal is to have
    the small, blue flame burn for as long as possible,
    thereby reducing the raw alcohol flavor, caramelizing
    the sugars, and entertaining your guests!
