To flambe something simply means to cover it with spirits then set it alight. Never pour the alcohol right from the bottle if the food is on the stove; any splashback can be ignited and the flame can travel inside the bottle.




  • In a large skillet, melt butter over medium-high heat. Add figs and sugar. Cook one minute. Add port, and ignite. Cook until flames disappear and the mixture is reduced and syrupy, about one minute.

  • Spoon mixture over ice cream, and serve immediately.
