Wine Plum Sorbet 2 1

Foraged Plum & Pinot Noir Sorbet

Thanks to my good friend Martin Reed, I was blessed with some amazing foraged plums this weekend. Oh, what to do? Well, I had gotten this free ice cream maker off of yerdle and I been meaning to use it. Sadly, it has been sitting on my floor for about 6 months now (sigh).

The plums are super tasty but because they are foraged, there was a bit of inconsistency in the flavor due to the different varieties. To sorta bring them all to the same place, I slow roasted them. Then I rounded them out with some Pinot Noir. Yum! It smelled so good I wanted to eat my house.

You don't have to use the Sea Glass Pinot Noir that I did from Whole Foods. You just need a wine that has caramel and cherries along with some nice acidity to it.

Ingredients

 1 pound plums (about 2 cups)
 2 cups SeaGlass Santa Barbara Pinot Noir
 1 cup sugar
 1 bay leaf
 Pinch of salt
Yields1 Serving
Prep Time5 minsCook Time5 minsTotal Time10 mins

Instructions

1

Add the plums to a baking dish and roast them at 275 degrees for about 4 hours. Now, I have these wonderful foraged plums that are all about the size of a cherry tomato. If you are using a standard plum from the store, I suggest you halve and pit them first.

They are done roasting. Wow, how gorgeous do these look? Now, pitting these before they were roasted would be a pain in the behind. So I did it after. The pits just slide right out, easy breezy.

Transfer the pitted plums to the food processor and puree them until very smooth.

4

In a medium sauce pan, combine the plum puree (should be about 1 cup), 2 cups red wine, 1 cup of sugar and the bay leaf. Bring it to a boil, just so that the sugar becomes incorporated.
