Flaming Cranberry Jubilee



2 cups, whole fresh or frozen cranberries

1 8-oz jar plum jam

1/2 tsp. cinnamon

1 quart vanilla ice cream

Lemon extract or Brandy

sugar cubes




Take a saucepan and simmer the berries and jam gently for about 5-8 minutes. Remove from heat and cool.



To serve: Fill a serving dish with ice cream. Ladle the berry mixture over the ice cream. Top with a sugar cube that’s been saturated with Brandy or Lemon extract. Light the cube immediately. The flame lasts for several minutes. Serve while flaming.



Folks, these are impressive! It’s best to have two people assemble this dessert just before serving. One person doing the ice cream and berries and the other doing the sugar cubes. (This is a good Judy 4th dessert too!)
