  • 5 cups quartered, pitted ripe plum (about 6 plums)
  • 1/2 cup ruby port or Concord grape juice
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/2 cup sugar

Preparation

  • Active

  • Ready In

  1. Puree plums in a food processor until smooth. Pour through a fine-mesh sieve set over a bowl and press on the solids to extract all the juice.
  2. Combine port (or juice), water and sugar in a small saucepan. Heat over medium heat, stirring, until the sugar is dissolved.
  3. Stir the syrup into the fruit puree. Chill the mixture in the refrigerator until cold, about 4 hours.
  4. Pour the sorbet mixture into an ice cream maker. (No ice cream maker? See Tip.) Freeze according to the manufacturer's directions.
  • Make Ahead Tip: Freeze in an airtight container for up to 1 week. Let soften slightly before serving.
  • Tip: If you don't have an ice cream maker, freeze the mixture in a shallow metal cake pan or ice cube trays until solid, about 6 hours. Break into chunks and process in a food processor until smooth, stopping to scrape down the sides as needed.
