Preparation

  1. Add butter and brown sugar to a high sided skillet over medium heat. Stir constantly until the mixture turns into golden brown syrup and the sugar is completely dissolved, about 5 minutes.
  2. Add cinnamon, nutmeg and plantains; cook until plantains are lightly browned and soft, about 3 to 4 minutes.
  3. Add rum and use a long kitchen lighter to ignite the liqueur. Keep cooking until alcohol burns off and no flame remains, about 1 to 2 minutes.
  4. Once the flame burns out, keep cooking, spooning sauce over plantains until syrupy and reduced, aout 2 minutes.
  5. Serve over ice cream with crushed peanuts.
  6. Enjoy!
