Anyone ever dry a Mamey Sapote into a powder or anything to preserve it? I mean there's Lucuma Powder so it should be possible.

powders are usually industrially produced. i suppose if you have a vitamix it might be worth trying. but the sugar in the mamey might really gum up your powder and your vitamix and you'd just have a sticky mess.
i'm always breaking coffee grinders trying to powder stuff. but generally they are things that are lower in sugars.
mameys, with that dry, sweet flesh, ought to simply dry quite well. cut into strips and put in the sun. just like with a tomato or an apricot. maybe with cheesecloth over it to keep bugs off. i bet you'd have great dried mamey.

Yes, I have dried mamey many times. It becomes quite leathery, but rehydrates fairly well. The fruit is rare to find, only every several years or so it comes through, so I dry it so can keep it longer. Delicious too
