Mango Sorbet with Crystalised Ginger

What did you do this week-end? I bet most of you went out of that town to enjoy those last summer days…Me, I stayed home, worked on all the things that needed attention around the house, and cooked. There were so many things that I had wanted to bake and prepare that it was nice to have the time to stay home, and play around in my kitchen. One problem… all the things I prepared, or most of them were not anything my family wanted to eat…. Oops…Today for example, I fixed that mango sorbet I have been meaning to prepare for the past days. I love mango, and wanted to eat a sorbet because it is a light dessert, and almost good for you;-) unlike all those desserts I have been presenting.

Ingredients: 3 ripe mangos, cut and chopped, 1/3 cup of flavored rum ( i used vanilla), 1/3 cup of sugar, the juice of one lime, 2 tbsp of crystalized ginger.

In a blender, place all the ingredients except the ginger and chop until you have a very very smooth puree. Place the puree in a ice cream freezer, and stir until the ice cream is freezing ( about 20 minutes). Remove the ice-cream from the ice cream maker, and add the ginger. Stir. Place the ice-cream in the freezer for 1-2 hours to harden the ice-cream.

To serve, scoop 2 scoops of mango ice-cream in martini glasses, or in wine tumblers, and decorate as you wish.

Bon Appetit and Happy Cooking!!!
