They are so juicy it just runs down your chin and sweet?

Too bad you couldn't tuck those into an envelope for me, Billy! Lucky you.

Those are gorgeous, Billy! Sure wish I was your neighbor! I would have been glad to pick them. When I spoke with you the other day, I forgot to ask you how you make your plum sorbet? Do you have a recipe you could share?

Sure 'nuf. We usually juice the plums in those old double-decker steamers...last year we had over 4 gallons. This is the basic recipe I use for all my sorbets. I use the Limoncello because of the intense lemon flavor.

Here is another basic recipe I use. The granita is not as fine an ice, but equally delicious:

3 cups fruit juice
1/2 cup sugar
1 cup water
2 teaspoons fresh lemon juice

In a medium saucepan, combine the sugar and water and bring to a boil, stirring until the sugar dissolves. Let cool. Stir in the fruit juice and pour into a chilled 9- x 13-inch metal pan. Place in the freezer and freeze, stirring every 30 minutes until the mixture is firm.

Yields 4 cups.

Basic Sorbet

Recipe By : Bill
Serving Size : 0 Preparation Time :0:00
Categories : Desserts-Ices

Amount Measure Ingredient -- Preparation Method
-------- ------------ --------------------------------
1 cup simple Sugar Syrup
1 1/2 cups juice
3 tablespoons Limoncello

Mix chilled simple syrup and juice together; add Limoncello. Stir to combine and chill thoroughly. You can chill in the freezer for 15 to 20 minutes but not long enough for any ice crystals to form; then stir thoroughly and pour into the running ice cream machine. It will reach the soft sorbet consistency much quicker.
Don't wait too long to tell someone you love them.

I adore home made plum jam, and a jelly would be such a glorious colour.

Zucchini by the bushel would make such a marvelous chutney, or bread and butter pickle, or added to mixed pickles.

Do you use the limoncello with the plum juice? That certainly would make a very pretty jelly too!

That's what I do, Maryann, use both.

Do you make your own Limoncello? That's good "stuff"! Have this recipe for baba's with plums and Limoncello...

No, I don't make it, but I'll bet it's a great addition to a number of things. I love anything lemon, and keep meaning to try it.

Billy, have you ever made the Cinnamon Plum Cake?
Practice safe lunch. Use a condiment.
