As we shove off into the New Year, this flamboyant dessert can serve as a reminder that we can all be bright lights this coming year. Let’s start with a banana for every two people    Peel and slice in half    In a medium size sauce pan, melt 1/3 cup of brown sugar and 3 Tbsp unsalted light butter –  with an added touch of 1/2 tspn cinnamon and 1/4 tspn nutmeg    Once the sugar is liquified, place the banana in the pan and cover with the sugar, cinnamin, nutmeg mixture    When the banana is heated – turn off the heat and let simmer for a minute    Add 2 Tbsp of Dark Rum alcohol   Light a long match and light the Rum with awareness that the flame will engulf the pan and bananas for a moment    The banana’s flambe’ed are now ready to be served    The fruit can be eaten as is, or on top a scoop of vanilla ice cream with the mixture spooned over it    Some people serve it as a special dessert to embrace the new year.
