Excellent! Great technique of reblending sorbet 1/2 hour before serving. Made it so creamy. Considered using my sorbet machine but followed recipe exactly. I'm sure the machine would not have produced a better result. Sparkling flavor, great palate cleanser and very pretty.
The process was easy and I'm glad peeling the plums was not required. The orange flavour was too overpowering. I added extra artificail sweetener (keep the calories down)but it was still very tart. I loved the colour. next time I would leave out the orange zest. This recipe would be great (5 stars) if the orangeflavour could be reduced.
The consistency was good and it is easy to make but I thought it was too orangey, even using about 1.25 lb. plums. I will serve it with vanilla ice cream to balance the tartness. Next time I will try about 1/2 cup OJ or less.
