DIRECTIONS

  • Drain plums but reserve syrup.
  • Remove stones from plums.
  • Blend or process plums and syrup until smooth.
  • Place plum mixture in a saucepan and add marsala, sugar and lemon juice.
  • Bring to a gentle simmer and cook, stirring frequently, until sugar melts.
  • Pour into a suitable container (I use a 20cm round cake tin), cover tightly with foil (or similar) and place in the freezer.
  • Leave for several hours until mixture is slushy and partially set.
  • Beat egg whites until soft peaks form.
  • Add sugar gradually, beating between each addition.
  • Gently fold beaten egg whites through partially frozen plum mixture.
  • Return to freezer, stirring occasionally (once or twice should do), until the mixture sets.
  • Serve in glass bowls with a little cream poured over (the cream hardens and makes a lovely topping!).
