      Nice ripe pears.

    2. peaches
      mango
      cherries
      pineapple

      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 --

          Oranges
          Limes
          Grapefruits

          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.
