Sometimes a highly alcoholic flavoring extract or a sugar cube soaked in spirits is flamed.
The spirits are usually warmed before adding to sauce and igniting.
Ignite the sauce with a match, keeping your face clear of the high flames.
Then spoon sauce over food. ***(a sauce high in butter or sugar content will produce a higher flame than will an ordinary sauce.)
The alcohol vanishes during burning, leaving the food with a subtle spirit flavor.
