Mango-Lime Sorbet (from every cooking site in existence)
4 ripe mangos
1 cup sugar*
3 tablespoons lime juice, plus more to taste
*If your mangos are very ripe, reduce the sugar a little.
**Measure water in the dry measuring cup you used for the sugar; simple syrup has to be equal parts sugar and water.
Pour water and sugar into small saucepan over medium heat.
|Make more cuts lengthwise.|
This is such good sorbet! The lime and mango are perfectly balanced and create a zesty, yet sweet, sorbet. Since there's no cream, it freezes rock-solid in the freezer, but if you take it out about 10 minutes before serving, it softens to a scoopable texture. Just out of the ice cream maker, though, it's irresistible. My dad, resident ice cream fiend, loved it. The only problem is that I poured the pureé into the ice cream maker before starting it when I should have started it first.
