It is Tuesday, and I am already dreaming about the up coming labor daybor weekend. My Love and I will be venturing out-of-town, to some other town, and it is going to be great!
This past weekend, we were in this V-town of ours, and this town was burnin up! It was SOOO hot outside, that whilst I was cooking in the kitchen, I actually had sweat dripping from my face. I wasn’t even really cooking, I was raw-ing, so there were not ovens or elements heating me. And for me to work up a proper sweat is saying something, because I usually err on the chilly side, and only produce a faint, shall we say, “glow.”
In light of these developments, I did what any decent fruity would do. I made mango ice cream.
First, I took my mangoes and gave them a good scrub, washing away any spots that were… gross.
Next, like any good french chef, I “turned” my mangoes. Not really, I just peeled them;
Then I cut away the two cheeks, and two side strips from the pit;
You may do with the pit as you see fit. (<–Creating rhyme, I do it all the time)
Next, I cubed up that mango like I was my job.
Then I laid all those cubes onto a sheet tray, lined with parchment paper.
I stuck that puppy in the freezer to become frozen. Why go through all the work of cubing it at placing it all nice like on a sheet tray you ask oh fruity friends?
It was to avoid this;
Mango loaf. Hacking at that with a knife is like telling God you feel he gave you one to many fingers…
SO! When many hours had passed and it was dinner time, I took out my cubes, and broke them up a little. Using all the fingers I am glad God gave me.
All that was left was to run them cubes through the champ! You could also use a food processor or blender to do this, you may just have to add a little orange juice to get the works going;
Then I had this;
You may then stick your ice cream back in the freezer to firm up, whilst you clean your juicer however you see fit.
It was so lovely, cool, creamy, sweet and refreshing. Just what the sweaty doctor ordered for the sweaty fruit bat. It was awesome, and I want more today.
Oh! And don’t worry Baby Sister and My Love, I used real soap and water to wash the juicer too… I swear.
What do you do in a heat wave friends?
