I think there’s something to be said for a good scoop experience. Being able to carve easily through an ice cream/gelato/sorbet and manipulate it into plump spheres of flavour is such a pleasure. This was only the beginning of the joy this sorbet brought. First you’re sucked 10,000 leagues under the sorbet sea to the darkest, purest depths of plum flavour you could ask for. Icy, yet sweet and sticky, at those depths you are privy to every flavour secret the plum harbours in its flesh. When you come up for air, you’re gently rocked on waves of tartness that build without ever cresting or dumping you unceremoniously back down again. Altogether this is a fresh tasting intensity that seriously tempts me to procure another tub for the purposes of tiding me over while plums are out of season.
Serve sculpted to perfection in a bowl of your choice.
