mango berry sorbet 

While we were with my family last month, we went to Red Lobster.  I am not sure I have ever been to a Red Lobster before.  I have lived very close to the ocean most of my life so I am used to very fresh seafood.  The grilled salmon was not bad but the daiquiri I had gave me ideas for sorbet.  It was mango berry.  And the sorbet I made - speechless.  It is another that will disappear much to fast for our own goods!  I did used a caramelized lemon rum in it that an acquaintance distilled.  Just use a good rum instead if you chose to use the rum.  What I have will most likely never be on the market.

Mango Berry Sorbet

2 cups water

2 cups sugar

10 ounces raspberries

3 mangos, peeled, seeded, and sliced

4 ounces rum (optional)

Put the water and sugar in a pan.  Bring to a boil and boil one minute.

Put half the fruit in a blender.  Add half the simple syrup.  Blend.  Put in a large bowl.  Put the rest of the fruit and simple syrup in the blender.  Blend.  Put in the same bowl as the other blended mixture.

Add the rum.

Freeze per your ice cream makers instructions or put in your freezer and stir every couple hours until solid.

Looks like raspberry or strawberry sorbet.  Does not taste like it.  Yum!
