- 3/4 cup sugar
- 5 large ripe mangoes peeled, seeded
- 1/4 cup freshly-squeezed orange juice
- 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt
Place the sugar and 1/2 cup water in a small saucepan and cook until the sugar dissolves. Set aside.
Place the mangoes in a food processor fitted with the steel blade and puree. You should have about 5 cups of mango. If you want a smoother sorbet, you can process the puree through a food mill fitted with a medium blade.
Combine the mango, sugar syrup, orange juice, and salt and refrigerate until cold. Freeze in an ice cream machine according to the manufacturer's directions. (The sorbet will be soft.) Serve directly from the ice cream machine.
This recipe yields 1 1/2 quarts; 6 servings.
