Recipe: Mango Punch
4 cups fresh mango puree (from 8 soft,ripe mangoes*; or from canned mango)

1 cup granulated sugar
1/2 cup fresh lime juice (2 to 3 limes)
1/2 cup red prickly pear syrup (or grenadine)
Makes 8 to 12 servings.
*To slice a fresh mango – Make two lengthwisecuts on either side of where the pit is. The pit is large butfairly flat, so make the cuts no more than 1/2-inch on eitherside of an imaginary center line. Take the two outside slicesand score the flesh with the tip of a knife. Get as close tothe skin as you can without breaking it. Hold the scored slicein two hands and gently push up from the skin side, which willpop inside out. The segments of mango will separate and can easilybe scooped off the skin with a spoon or table knife.
