A lovely strawberry sauce and ice cream, served in dramatic fashion. Have everything ready before proceeding. Makes six servings.
1/2 cup water
1/3 cup sugar
2 t. arrowroot or cornstarch
1 pint strawberries, washed and hulled
1/4 cup kirsch
1 quart vanilla ice cream
V.S.P. Mix the water, sugar and arrowroot. Heat, stirring, to a boil and add the strawberries. Return to a boil, stirring only enough to blend. Add the kirsch and ignite. Serve the flaming sauce over the ice cream.
