I love using heat or flames to add flavour. No flames here, but heat in that the plums are roasted first to enhance the natural sweetness without adding extras apart from the obvious sugar and vanilla. And how about that colour? That too is partly because of the roasting.
This is the perfect palate cleanser between courses if you are hosting a fancy schmancy dinner party. Of course it does equal distance as the perfect cool treat by the pool with the kids. Your call. Double duty! Gotta love that.
