[feeling a need for some comfort food, made a mango float experiment today.]
these are what i used. other recipes recommend some other variations.
two big ripe juicy mangoes, sliced into thin strips (not so easy to find these days as it is december). canned peaches will do, too.
1 big can condensed milk
1 big can Nestle cream
graham crackers (crushed or solid? i tried solid for this time.)
half bar gulaman, melted (there's always the gelatin sachet but just tried the gulaman bar for now)
mix cream, milk and gulaman. layer crackers, cream/milk, mangoes at will. top with whatever is left behind, preferably cream and mangoes. may sprinkle crushed crackers on top, too, for effect, it's up to you. chill the finished product. crunch on unused crackers. nibble on mango seeds. use a piece of bread to wipe the remaining condensed milk from the can. eat the bread. drink plenty of water to dilute all that sugar. clean up the stuff. wait patiently for the mango float to set. try not to think about it too much.
after what seems like many hours, take out the pyrex dish from the ref. we placed ours in the freezer but i think it's best that you don't freeze it, unless you want to have popsicles. anyway, ours didn't have time to freeze. just enough gelling so it's not too jiggly when you cut it. slice and arrange in little saucers. those who want more can have bigger slices. those who are shy can have little portions and just get some more later. if there's still some left over. dig in. let melt in mouth before swallowing. savor. ahhh.
verdict? kulang. next time double the recipe. heck, quadruple it. and take a picture.
