Want a kid version/Bananas Foster ice cream??

Want to try this recipe with the grandkids and wondered if you all think I would be good to subsitute the rum with and rum extract instead.
Don't want the kids to have the alchol.

Unfortunately, if you want to flambe it (traditional) you have to have alcohol. You can buy syrups (meant to go in coffee) of different flavors, but I don't think anything but booze will flame.

Saw that recipe on the Neeley's show this a.m. I thought of this thread, too. Their recipe is for ice cream and doesn't call for flambe, but I imagine you could cook the alcohol out of the rum sauce by simmering. But if it were me, I would use either rum extract or even vanilla or almond in the ice cream and the sauce. I bet your kids would love it! (I think most kids would prefer vanilla or almond to a rum flavor anyway.)

Not sure what measurements to use when replacing the original amounts of rum called for in the recipe.

I'd love to hear how it turns out!

I don't want the kids getting alcohol either but it seems to me that after it is flamed there is really not enough alcohol left to worry much about. I mean the amount of alcohol in the recipe is divided by the amount of servings and as I said most of it cooks off. No one is going to get enough to cause a problem. Maybe just be sure the parents know what is going on. (And please don't anyone hit me over the head for this, it's just my personal opinion.)

Don't most extracts contain some alcohol?

Joesfolk-This recipe is for ice cream; it does not call for flaming, unless I am missing it somewhere.... Please correct me if I am wrong. Saying that, I can see where OP doesn't want the grandbabies to have the alcohol, so substitution shouldn't be a problem here.

I believe so, but wouldn't you use just a small amount, making the amount of alcohol negligible?

I use brandy when I make them. Not sure there is an extract for that. Remember Graham Kerr as the Galloping Gourmet? He made something called Bananas Molinbimbi (sp). Whole point of his recipe was to get sloshed from eating dessert.
