i finally got round to making roasted plum sorbet a few weeks ago but was disappointed with the result – it had none of the intensely aromatic flavour that roasted and poached plums usually have. the texture was also wrong - too hard and ice-like. so, it has been sitting unloved in my freezer.
however, inspiration struck – i also had a batch of la poire sorbet in the freezer so i decided to allow both to semi-defrost and then blitz them together. the result is a beautifully coloured and textured (that’ll be the vodka!) autumnal sorbet. i think a version spiced with mulled wine flavourings might be on the cards next.
