I made this to compliment a duck dish so I added a little soy sauce and rosemary to make it more savory. All in all pretty good.

This is fantastic on ice cream. I didn't have brandy so I used bourbon. I also added 1/2 tsp more of bourbon at the end since most of it cooked off. It just added a slight bourbon flavor.
