    Default Plum Sorbet

    Description: a cool refreshing dessert or can be used between courses in a formal meal...but who does formal meals in the summer...not I, LOL...to think of it, not in the winter, spring or fall either.
    Serving Size: 5 cups
    Time: 10 min plus 3+ hours
    Difficulty: Easy

    Ingredients:
    1. 6 ripe plums
    2. 1 cup water
    3. 3/4 cup sugar
    4. 2 tbl fresh lemon juice
    Preparation:
    1. quarter and pit plums
    Instructions:
    1. combine all the ingredients in a small saucepot and bring to a boil.
    2. Lower to a simmer and simmer 10 min, stirring frequently.
    3. Remove from heat and cool slightly.
    4. Pour sorbet into a shallow pan, cover with plastic wrap and place in the freezer for 2 hours. A ring of ice should begin forming in this length of time.
    5. Remove from freezer. Using a whisk, stir the frozen portion into the center; return to freezer for another hour and repeat.
    6. If it freezes too hard you can aerate it with a few spins in a food processor and then returning it to the freezer.

    That is easier that I would have expected too. For those watching their calorie intake (which in all truthfulness would not include me, LOL), I wonder if the consistency would be affected by something like 'Splenda'?

    I will definitely try this one out.
    My mum has an plum tree completely full with plums at this moment. so we are looking for all different things to make, otherwise we will eat plum jam for the rest of our lives!
