Place 1 cup of ice cream in each of 4 decorative glasses or bowls. Set the glasses in the freezer.

Melt the butter in a skillet over medium-high heat. Stir in the brown sugar and cook until dissolved into the butter. Whisk in the orange and lime juice and simmer until a smooth sauce forms. Mix in the spices. Add the nectarines and cook, turning once, for 2 minutes. Add the rum, tilt the pan slightly, and very carefully ignite with a long match. Cook, swirling the pan, until the flames die out. Divide and set the nectarine wedges in the ice cream filled glasses. Spoon over the sauce, garnish with mint, and serve immediately.

Recipe Options: Instead of nectarines, use 12 ripe plums, halved and pitted, in this recipe. Instead of vanilla, set the flambeed nectarines on another flavour of ice cream, such as chocolate, ginger or maple walnut.

Serving Suggestions

Serve this dessert with small bowls of complimentary things one can sprinkle on top of the nectarines and ice cream at the table, such as pecan pieces, shredded coconut and shavings of Dark Belgian chocolate.
