  • Ingredients
  • step-by-step directions
Cherries Jubilee
  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 2 cups fresh cherries (pitted) or 12 oz frozen cherries (drained)
  • 1/4 cup sugar
  • 1/2 vanilla bean (sliced lengthwise and scraped)
  • pinch of salt
  • 1/4 cup brandy
  • 1/2 orange (zested, juiced)
  • 1 pint vanilla gelato (for serving)
  • In a nonstick skillet over medium high heat, add butter. Once bubbling, add cherries, sugar, scraped vanilla bean and pinch of salt. Cook until the sugar has dissolved, about 1-2 minutes.
  • Remove from heat, add brandy and ignite. Extinguish flames by squeezing a 1/4 of your orange into the pan. Add zest of half the orange and set aside.
  • Scoop ice cream into serving bowls. Pour cherries over ice cream and serve immediately.
  • Tip: If fresh cherries are not available, substitute with frozen! Frozen will release more liquid, so cook an additional 5-8 minutes, until glaze-like, then add the brandy!
