The versions I've seen mentioned plums and other slightly larger fruits.
They're placed in a pan of brandy and it's set on fire.  No hands are to
be used, one just ducks in and grabs fruit by the teeth and tries to get
back out without getting burned.
I don't think it's very safe, as every source I've ever seen mentioned that
people got hurt playing it.
If wished, I think I could scare up a bibliography of sources, but none
has much in-depth info.
