• 850g can Wattie’s Black Doris Plums in Syrup
  1. Drain the Wattie’s Black Doris Plums and reserve the syrup. Remove the stones from the plums and place the plums and syrup in a food processor or blender and blend until smooth.
  2. Pour plum pulp into a low sided tray. Cover and place in the freezer until the mixture is frozen. Freezing time will depend on the depth of tray.
  3. Scoop the frozen mixture back into the food processor or blender and blend until smooth. Pour the sorbet into a deep container (this will allow it to be scooped when frozen). Cover and freeze again until firm, about 6–8 hours. Scoop into individual serving dishes.

Smooth Tip

Re-blending the sorbet after the initial freezing time gives the sorbet a smoother and lighter texture.

Easiest dessert ever and my grandchildren loved it. We had it with fresh water melon and rock melon chunks and it was a huge success. The children ( 6 & 8 yr old) asked for it again this week. I am going to try it with other fruit.
