What's Cooking?

A new Foster.  Forget the bananas.  They've got nothing on this...

Peaches Foster.  That's right, banana can take a back seat.
I purchased some peaches at the Farmer's Market that needed to be eaten right away.  And I was craving caramel.  Plus I had a couple of pints of raspberries and I love them with peaches anyway.  So, this is what I came up with.
And it's damn good. 

6 larges peaches, skin removed and cut into quarters
1 stick unsalted butter
3/4 c. brown sugar
1/4 tsp. salt
2/3 c. dark rum (no substitutions for this, sorry.  Don't even try.)
2 pints raspberries
Heat butter in large pan over medium heat.  Allow butter to melt until you start to see brown flecks.  Add the brown sugar and salt, and whisk until the sugar is dissolved, a few minutes at most.  Add the rum and light away pyro.  Or, you could take the boring route and allow the mixture to come to a boil and reduce.  It will take about 5-6 minutes to get the alcohol out, maybe more.  

You just have to taste to know, and believe me, if you are Mormon, you will know it is still there.  Which, who I am kidding, what Mormon, besides me, is actually going to go to the liquor store and buy rum?  Better to add the instructions just in case.  

Anyways, once the fire is out, add the raspberries and fold gently.  Serve over vanilla bean ice cream.

Did I already say it's damn good?  Because it is.
