|It’s easy to create a special dessert in minutes. Sauté seasonal fruit (now, stone fruit like peaches, plums and nectarines; in the fall, apples, pears and quince) in unsalted butter until soft; then place in a shallow bowl. In a small saucepan or microwave, heat a cup of your favorite jam or jelly (not preserves), splash with a tablespoon of rum or brandy and pour over the fruit. It’s easy enough to make every day, and special enough for company. The better the jam, the better the sauce—less expensive jams are mostly sugar. You can garnish with whipped cream and/or serve with a shortbread cookie.|
