Gelato and Sorbetto all summer long



As the height of the fruit season is reaching its zenith, there's only one thing to do!



Make Gelato!


And so we have been,..... repeatedly.  What's not to love about sorbets and gelato. We just made some plum gelato from a box of local ramsen Plums that we were given at the market, since one lady had more than she knew what to do with. Our family gelato machine is being put through it's paces. 


It's a great way to use up a lot of fruit when you have it as well as top it for the full fruit immersion. 
Even if you have just a small ice cream maker it's time to break it out and enjoy summer at her finest.
I've got a couple of busy weeks coming up with guests and the Tour du France coming through next week, so I hope I can find a few minutes to share some photos before getting back to some recipes. In the meantime, enjoy some fresh fruit sorbet and let the good times roll!
