Jorge Castillo: If you are lucky enough to find a fresh mamey, you must know the correct way to prepare it. The mamey has a thick brown skin that must be removed by scoring the mamey lengthwise with a sharp knife and peeling away the skin in strips.
Glenn Lindgren: Beneath this skin is a whitish membrane that is very bitter. You must scrape away this membrane until you reach the tender flesh of the mamey. Then just cut the flesh away from the rather large pit.
Batidos are Cuban milkshakes, similar to American Style milkshakes, but with several unusual flavors.
1 cup whole milk
3 tablespoons sweetened condensed milk
3 tablespoons sugar (to taste)
1/2 cup crushed ice
1 cup fresh ripe mamey cubed or use frozen pulp
Put everything in the blender except the ice and process until frothy. Add the crushed ice and process until the ice is ground fine and the batido is thick and rich.
