Method

 
Place water and sugar in a saucepan and heat. Allow sugar to melt, then add all the fruit as well as the salt and the vanilla pod. Bring the mix to a slow boil and cook for about 5 minutes or until the sauce has reduced to about half.

Add the kirsch and flambe the fruit.

To make the puddings: Spray 6 oven-proof teacups with Spray 'n Cook and spoon about 2 tablespoons of the fruit and berry mixture in each cup. Top with some of the vanilla mixture and fill cup to about 3/4.

Bake for about 20-25 minutes or until a skewer comes out clean when tested.

When ready to serve, tip puddings out onto a serving plate and serve with more fresh berries a good scoop of vanilla ice-cream or chantilly cream.

Tip of the day

 
Baobab leaves
African cooks use leaves from the massive baobab tree to thicken their stews. Like okra, the leaves give the dish a congealing texture that's characteristic of West African stews. Okra will give a similar effect if you can't find baobab leaves.
