Lime Mango Sorbet

I found this recipe last summer on the internet, after someone had given us a big bag full of mangoes. I love the flavor of mangoes and the lime adds such a nice twist. A perfect summer treat!1 cup sugar
1 cup water
zest from one lime
3 ripe mangoes (about 2 1/2 pounds)
1/2 cup lime juice
pinch salt

1. Heat the sugar, water, and lime zest in a medium saucepan until the sugar has completely dissolved. Set aside to cool.
2. Cut the flesh from the mangoes
3. Put the mango pieces, sugar water, lime juice, and salt into a blender. Blend until completely smooth. Pour into a medium bowl, cover with plastic wrap, and refrigerate until completely chilled.
4. Process the mixture in your ice cream maker according to the ice cream maker directions. Transfer mixture to a plastic storage container and freeze in your freezer until firm, at least 6 hours.

Makes almost 1 quart.
