Mango Sorbet

Our first homemade ice-cream attempt was lip-smacking good and I thoroughly enjoyed the whole ice-cream making process. This time, I decided to make my own mango sorbet since it’s summer here and it’s in season. I used Kensington Pride mangoes as they have stronger mango aroma and they are sweeter too. Sorbet is much simpler to make compared to ice-cream. It basically consist of 2 main ingredients, the fruit puree and sugar syrup. Citrus (orange/lemon juice) is added to bring out the mango flavor. I also added a little quantity of glucose to the sorbet mixture. I read that this helps to create a smooth texture sorbet rather than icy texture after being frozen for a few days. The trick worked as my sorbet was really smooth and creamy. However, Mr. D disagreed, saying that sorbet should be icy rather than smooth. Nevertheless, he still ate quite a lot of it. Haha…
