Basically, this ice cream is a cobbler in a cup. The brown sugar hits you first, warm and a little molasses-y, followed by the honeyed flavor of peach and a delicate kiss of bourbon in place of vanilla.

The best strawberry sorbet should also be the simplest. There should be berries—small enough to pop several in your mouth, and sweet enough to eat straight with a smile. There should be sugar. There should be some acid if needed, and some salt to make the flavor sing. And that's really it.

TYou won't need eggs for this ice cream, which is thick and dense thanks to the plums and honey. A couple spoonfuls of plum brandy helps as well, both for texture and to amplify the plums' honeyed flavor.
