Create your own topping, go crazy and have fun as there is no right or wrong.
In a sauce pan heat up maple syrup. ( The amount of maple syrup will vary based on the amount of people you are serving, the amount of French toast, waffles, or pancakes you are making. There is no right or wrong.)
Slice the strawberries, peaches, plums, and bananas into small pieces. Add brandy or cognac (if you don't have any don't worry it works great without as well). If you like, after the liquor gets warm (about 5 minutes), carefully throw a match on it and let it burn out.
Sprinkle with cinnamon and nutmeg.
Spoon out the fruit and strain the sauce. Return fruit to pan.
Return pan to heat for a moment and add a pinch of black pepper. (I'm always surprised what a pinch of black pepper does for fruit)
Pour over waffles, French toast, or pancakes.
For total decadence, add mascarpone cheese between each layer of waffles, French Toast, or pancakes.
When you speak to your butcher you need the following guidelines:
Coat the roast with "butcher block black pepper" or grind fresh black peppercorns. Put 1 cup of water in a roasting pan with a rack.
Preset oven to 500 degrees (allow about 20 minutes for the stove to get up to temperature).
The calculation we use is to take the weight of the roast without the ribs TIMES 6 minutes* then shut off the oven and leave it in the oven for 1 1/2 hours.
UNDER NO CIRCUMSTANCES, INCLUDING NUCLEAR EXPLOSIONS, SHOULD YOU OPEN THE OVEN ONCE THE ROAST IS INSERTED.
The roast will come out medium rare to rare.
*For Example: If your roast weighs 4.6 lbs, the initial time in the oven at 500 (would be 27.6 minutes)
