Approximately 1 quart



In a saucepan combine the plums, the sugar, and 2 1/2 cups water and bring the mixture to a boil, stirring until the sugar is dissolved. Simmer the mixture, covered, for 5 minutes and let it cool for 5 minutes. In a blender or food processor puree the mixture, strain the puree through a fine sieve into a bowl, pressing hard on the solids, and let it cool. Stir in the lemon juice and the vanilla and chill the mixture, covered, for 1 to 2 hours, or until it is cold. The mixture may be made up to this point 1 day in advance and kept covered and chilled. Stir the mixture, transfer it to 2 metal ice cube trays without the dividers or a shallow metal bowl, and freeze it, stirring it with a fork every 20 to 30 minutes depending on the temperature of the freezer and crushing the large frozen clumps, for 2 to 3 hours, or until it is firm but not frozen hard. Scrape the granita with a fork to lighten the texture and serve it in chilled bowls.;
