During the week our neighbour so kindly donated us a bumper bag of plums – oh wow they are so super delicious I just can’t say – yummy yummy yummy enough… however you can only eat so many!!! if you get my drift…

Anyway a few years ago when we had a bumper windfall of plums I was in the habit of making ice cream, I made so much ice cream that year! I could almost have opened an ice creamery!  Having spent a few summers in Italy  (main land) and Sicily you have no idea how much I would love to open a real Italian Gelato Casa! Yes debate away the difference between Gelato and Ice Cream… Anyway I digress… slightly – back to making my ice cream today…

I am making a Ben and Jerry’s vanilla ice cream base and am going to swirl baby swirl …

(don’t you just love that word – swirl ) the stewed plums in…  I only hope it will taste as good as I remember it from a few years back.  I used a different recipe for the ice cream then as the B&J book is a new addition to the household but we have had lots of success with the recipes so thought we would give it a whirl – its the end of summer and I feel like swirling and whirling and twirling :)

Looking forward to adding the ice cream to these babies that girl child made yesterday…
