      1. peaches, apricots

        1. You can flambe just about anything. In addition to the fruits already listed you might want to consider the citrus family --


          Most tropical fruits can be flambeed as well. Soak some figs in some port and set that on fire. I can't really think of a fruit that you probably couldn't flambe

          1. thnk you for the list of fruits to try - i haven't seen recipes for flambeed fruits other than banana and mangoes. i'll have to try all of these.
