  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
