Quick notes on bruleed sugar: It may take some practice to achieve the right amount of sugar to brulee evenly. Tap the vessel and toss out the excess sugar. Light your torch and turn it down just to have about a half inch flame. Remember the heat from the torch will be far in from of the actual flame. People have a tendency to wave their torch around like they are trying to charm a snake. This is unnecessary! Slowly move your torch across the sugar in a fluid motion. It may take several passes of the torch to achieve the dark golden brown sugar crisp.
