Slice the peaches and toss with the lime zest and cloves.


Melt the butter in a saute pan over medium-high heat. Add the peach slices and sprinkle with the sugar. Cook, turning gently with a heatproof spatula, 2 minutes. Turn off the heat.


In a separate small saucepan, heat the bourbon. Turn off the heat and ignite with a flame starter or long match. Pour over the peaches and turn the heat on under the peaches.


Cook until the flames subside. Serve at once, over ice cream or with a dollop of creme fraiche.

Use 100-proof bourbon for best flaming.
