As usual, I don’t think about blogging a thing till I’m halfway through doing the thing!
The other day I bought half a dozen beautiful little ataulfo mangos, they were ripe, ready to eat right then and there. And of course I realized once I got home that we were not going to get around to it! The eating I mean. So I decided I needed to do something, and in some wild flight of imagination I decided to make mango sorbet.
Who knew how easy sorbet is to make, surely not me!
you peel the mangoes and squish all the pulp into a blender or food processor. Based on how many mangoes, you make the appropriate amount of simple syrup, or heck, you could just buy simple syrup.
For my 6 mangoes I used 1 cup water and 1 cup sugar, heated to melt the sugar, and then cooled, and the juice of 2 limes.
Then just process till smooth.
You can use machines to freeze your sorbet, but I don’t have that either. I think the machines would make the sorbet smoother and creamier, mine is a bit like an icee or a slushie. But it is damn tasty!
