I-Tim Ma-Muang (Mango Ice Cream)

Recipe by grovinchicken

You will need a Ripe Mango Which in Thailand, land of abundant, glorious fruit, is easy to come by. In America you will have to be the judge. The flesh of ripe mango is fragrant and should give slightly to the touch. To ripen, leave the fruit out at room temperature for a day or two in a closed paper bag. I got this recipe from an Excellent book called "The Best of Thailand".
