it was a busy memorial day weekend and i don’t even know where to begin. my mom came to town and we had a grand time. lots of eating and drinking and very little time in the kitchen. i did manage to make this fantastically refreshing mango sorbet though…perfect for the warm weather and sun-shiny skies we’ve been having. i even made a sorbet float with some sparkling water. yum, yum!
i don’t have much to say, except that mango sorbet is amazing and my mom is the kewlest EVAR. seriously, she’s awesome. people tell me all the time, like i don’t already know, that she is the most generous and welcoming lady in the land….and she is hilarious and will always tell you like it is. i really need to dedicate a long post about her, but for now here are a few pictures from the weekend.
mango and ginger sorbet
adapted from epicurious
4 1/2 cups mangoes (peeled and chopped)
1 cup water
1 cup sugar
1/2 cup lime juice (from 4 medium limes)
1 tablespoon freshly grated ginger
bring sugar and water to a boil in a medium saucepan, until all the sugar dissolves. set aside to cool.
once syrup is cooled, place chopped mango into a blender with the syrup, lime juice and ginger. puree the heck out of it. chill if needed and process in an ice cream maker according to manufacturers instructions.
