Broiled Plums

Sometimes all you want after dinner is a bowl of fruit.  With a little brandy and a sprinkle of light-brown sugar, fresh plums can be transformed into a warm, juicy, caramelized dessert.  Whether you serve the broiled fruit as is or top it with mascarpone, whipped cream.ice cream or frozen yogurt, the plums cap of the evening on a deliciously sweet and not-too-heavy note.  Feel free to substitute any juicy fruit you have around — apricots, peaches, figs or for a tarter flavor red plums instead of black.  Just make sure the fruit you choose is ripe but not too soft to the tough; it should yield to gentle pressure.
