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

 
Carving meat
Always allow your roast to rest for 5 to 15 minutes before carving so that the juices can be reabsorbed and the meat presents an even surface when sliced. Use a short- or long-bladed knife, and a two-pronged carving fork with a guard. To prevent the meat from losing juice, steady it with the flat of the fork, rather than piercing.
