Cook, stirring constantly, over simmering water until the consistency of thin mayonnaise. Add rum, and pour into a shallow broiler proof serving dish. Refrigerate several hours or overnight. Sift light brown sugar over custard to the depth of about 1/4 inch. Place under broiler, watching every minute, until sugar caramelizes and begins to brown. Refrigerate immediately. Serve w/fruit.
