Caramelised Peaches

Fruit isn't really my thing. You know how people have ice-cream and fruit?
Yea.. I hate it. I can't mut enough emphasis on it.

But I guess we're not really talking about Ice-cream and fruit, as you can see from the title of this post..so this is kinda awkward for mee.  I just wanted to make a point
Okay, a useless point.

I have often heard of caramelised figs, how they go all gooey and ooey inside, releasing a fruit burst when you bite into it. The caramelisation on top of the fruit also gives a sort of chewy taste.

Try this.

Caremelised Peaches
- 2 Medium sized very ripe peaches
- 2Tb of brown sugar
- 1/2 tsp Cinnamon powder
- 2Tb Dark rum, or Bacadardi

Preheat oven to 180 degrees celcius, or preheat the grill
Wash Peaches and cut into sixths. Place on a slice pan that is greased with butter.
In a small seperate bowl, combine the brown sugar and cinnamon powder, combine and spoon over the peaches in the pan.
Be sure that all the peaches are covered with the mixture and sprinkle lightly with the rum.
Leave to marinate for 10 minuites, then grill and serve when peaches are slightly charred, and the sugar is totally caremelised.
