Try another summertime fruit!
Recipe: Fresh Plum Sorbet
Adapted from Sunday Suppers at Lucques. Makes about 1 quart.
What You'll Need:
1 ½ pounds very ripe and juicy plums
½-¾ cup sugar, depending on sweetness of plums
3 tablespoons honey
2 teaspoons lemon juice (optional)
- Pit the plums and cut into quarters.
- Toss the plums with the sugar and honey in a large bowl and let sit for 30 minutes.
- Put plum mixture in a blender and process until very smooth. Taste, and season with lemon juice if desired. Return to bowl and refrigerate until very cold, at least 1 hour.
- If you have an ice cream maker, process plum mixture according to the manufacturer's instructions. If you're going the old fashioned route (sans electronics) pour the chilled mixture into a freezer safe container with a lid, and place in the freezer. Remove from freezer and stir every 30 minutes until sorbet is fully frozen (about 2 hours).

I have tried this dessert at a restaurant in our city. Thanks for giving the recipe, I can finally make one at home. Is it fine to add orange juice instead of lemon juice?
