Citrus Peach – Piglet’s “Foodie Friday” Recipe Challenge

This recipe is not only simple to make, but absolutely delicious!

Citrus Peach

Citrus Peach

The only problem I had was the “flambé”. Mr Piglet poured a generous glug of brandy on the peaches, struck the match and I waited camera poised in eager anticipation to capture the “flambe” moment. The “moment” turned out to be a bit of a damp squib, no flames so no dramatic photo. I was tempted to go and find the blow torch in the name of art…but Mr piglet thought I was more likely to set the house alight. Any tips for the perfect flambé please?

Ingredients
Large Tin of halved peaches
1 Lemon
1 Orange
Dash of Brandy
Ice Cream or Cream

Method
Empty one large tin of halved peaches with the juice into a baking dish
Grate the zest of a lemon and an orange over the top of the peaches
Leave to marinate over night

Cook in the oven at 180C for 20 minutes.
Add brandy to flambé

Serve hot with cream of ice cream

Marinating the peaches with lemon and orange takes away the peach flavour and guests wonder what the fruit is although it looks like peaches.

Helpful tip from Carlaat: We heat the alcohol in a pan on the stove first, then light it and pour it, while on fire, over the fruit. That seems to work pretty well. You get a nice blue flame. Hope that helps!

  1. Use a brandy with the highest proof you can find. The higher the alcohol content, the better the chances for flames!

    I’ve never done a flambe so I’m no help to you there. 🙂

  8. When I’ve watched it, bananas foster for example, they use a high proof rum, pour it over the fruit, tilt the pan toward the flame and . . . WHOOSH!

  15. The peaches and ice cream look lovely and delectable. And the visual images you presented (flambe not flaming, the possibility of a blow torch for the sake of art, etc.) were, as usual, most entertaining!
