  • 2 lbs ripe plum
  • ¼ cup brown sugar
  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • 1 tsp raw ginger, minced 
  • 2 tbsp fresh orange juice
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 cup half and half
  • ¾ cup granulated sugar
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp orange zest


  • Program the oven to 400°F. 
  • Cut the plums in half, remove the pith from them and place them onto a rimmed parchment-lined baking sheet. 
  • Sprinkle the brown sugar, sea salt and bake them for 20 minutes until they are tender and the juices have been released.  
  • Let the roasted plums sit for 5 minutes and place the minced ginger, heavy cream, half and half, granulated sugar, vanilla extract, and orange zest into a saucepot. 
  • Heat the cream mixture for 4-5 minutes until the sugar crystals dissolve, then pour it into a sieve set over a bowl. 
  • Place the roasted plums into a blender along with 1/2 cup of ginger-infused cream and blend it into a smooth puree. 
  • Pour the pureed plums into a sieve set over a bowl, and throw away the pulp. Stir in the ginger-infused cream, cover it, and refrigerate it for at least 4-5 hours or overnight. 
  • Churn the roasted plum ice cream base into an ice cream machine according to the manufacturer's instructions. 
  • Transfer the roasted plum ice cream into an airtight freezer-safe container and freeze it for 3-4 hours. 


  • If using frozen plums, adjust the baking time to 25-30 minutes to allow the extra moisture to evaporate and the plums to dry out a bit more.
