I made this last week and it was incredible. I never thought that I'd be able to make a sorbet but this was lovely. When I made it it was a bit grainy, like a granita, which I liked. However, if you have more experience making sorbets I'm sure you can get the texture that you like. I also added a shot of tuica, which is a Romanian plum brandy like slivovica. If you can find this then use it because it intensifies the plum taste. The cooking time is freezing time.
