Flaming bananas foster question

Spencer | Jul 17, 2003 12:53 AM

I make bananas foster frequently, but I don't understand what happens when you flame the recipe. You put the rum in, then flame it- what happens at that point? Does the rum just burn off? If so, what's the point of putting the rum in in the first place? Can someone explain the flambee process to me?
Thanks in advance,
