Make it Your Own
All plums are good plums, especially if they're sourced from local growers. You can use any plums that you prefer, or even a mix of seasonal varieties.
We've gone for a super easy version that includes the plum skin- this gives the sorbet a stunning colour and a little bit more texture. If you're after a super smooth texture, blanch your plums and remove the skins, or peel them and exclude from your mix.
You can also up the ante with some lime or lemon juice, basil or other aromatics to elevate this recipe. The key ingredient is salt- it balances the sour and bitterness of the plum. You can serve this sorbet with flaky salt on top for that extra kick.
