You are probably wondering… what the heck is a pluot?? I know I certainly was when I spotted a huge pile of speckled, plum-like pluots at the Farmer’s Market recently. A pluot is a complex hybrid of a plum and an apricot. Both sweet and tart, pluots are a juicy stone fruit that exhibit a stunning combination of pinks, reds and whites when sliced open. If you can’t find pluots at your local market, you can also make this recipe with plums or apricots.
- 3 cups sliced pluots, pits removed (about 4 to 5 pluots)
- ½ cup sugar (or to taste*)
- Juice of ½ lemon
- Pinch of salt
- Place all ingredients in a food processor or blender and purée until very smooth. Drain the pluot purée using a fine mesh basket strainer, pressing to squeeze out as much juice as possible. Discard leftovers skins.
- Place the purée in an ice cream maker and freeze according to the manufacturer’s instructions.
