Plum Sorbet Recipe

Jamie Oliver has a regular food column in the Daily Mail Weekend Magazine, and last weekend he featured a few fabulous plum recipes. His plum sorbet caught my eye purely because the colour looks so beautiful.  The sorbet is a mixture of sweet and tart and is the perfect end to a meal. I love plums and it doesn't matter how they are prepared I am still a huge fan.

The recipe is easy to make, you only need a few ingredients and it tastes sublime.  He gives instructions to make the sorbet either with an ice cream maker or by hand, but it is far easier to make if you have an ice cream machine.

I am entering the plum sorbet as part of the Simple and in Season September Challenge hosted by Ren Behan of Fabulicious Food, this month the guest host is Katie from Feeding Boys and a Firefighter.

Septembers challenge is P for Alpha Bakes. Hosted by Caroline of Caroline Makes and Ros of The More Than Occasional Baker.

What a great idea for a sorbet - instantly gives a summer dish an autumnal make over. I've never made sorbet - I really need to get around to it and this recipe could easily twist my arm! Thanks for linking up.

Plum sorbet sounds so delicious Maggie and it's such a beautiful colour too.
