Saturday Blog Showcase #16 - Mango Sorbet

Welcome to the sixteenth edition of Saturday Blog Showcase!  Ann (Thibeault's Table) hope you join us in showcasing some of the wonderful bloggers and their recipes.  The guidelines to participate can be found at the bottom of this post.  Join in the fun!

I found my inspiration for this week at Sidewalk Shoes.  Pam's beautifully presented Mango Sorbet caught my eye.  It was a great opportunity to break my ice cream maker out of winter hibernation.  I found some wonderfully ripe mangoes at my local produce market and I was set to go.  I thought Pam's addition of dark rum (just a smidge!) was brilliant.  The sorbet was delicious, the color rich.  It will become a permanent part of my frozen treat repertoire for the summer.  Thanks, Pam!

Mango Sorbet
adapted from the genius of David Lebovitz

2 large, ripe mangoes
2/3 cup sugar
2/3 cup water
4 teaspoons fresh squeezed lime juice
1 tablespoon dark rum, plus more to taste
pinch of salt

Peel the mangoes and cut into chunks. Place the mangoes and the rest of the ingredients in a blender. Squeeze the mango pits over the blender to try and get as much juice out of the flesh as possible. Puree until smooth. Taste and add more lime juice or rum. Chill thoroughly and the process in your ice cream maker per it's directions.

Wow, the colour is amazing. I'm sure the flavour is too.

Sounds delicious! I have a mango sorbet that only takes water and sugar, and I just love it. The mango gives it such a great texture...not like other homemade ice creams that get hard after freezing.

I can imagine how delicious this is. I really have to get an ice cream freezer. I was planning to post today for SBS, but the recipe was an awful flop (my fault). I'll have it for next week.

I love this book, and have made several of his recipes. I'm making the strawberry sorbet, today. The mango has been on my mind for ages. Thanks for inspiring me to move this one up on my long queue of recipes I want to make.

This is beautiful....I enjoy mango but never had it as a sorbet. This motivated me!
