Sweet and Sour Papaya

Melissa Dried Papaya

Papayas are cultivated worldwide, but are native to North America. Look for pear-shaped Solo papayas that have a golden-yellow color. This has to be the best way to eat papaya. When you make this dish and leave it in the refrigerator overnight, a delicious exotic sweet-and-sour syrup develops and surrounds the smooth papaya slices. The seeds of papaya are edible and have a taste similar to pepper when dried and ground.

    1 ripe fresh papaya
    2 tablespoon freshly squeezed lemon juice
    2 tablespoons dark brown sugar


1. To remove the seeds, cut the unpeeled papaya in half. 
    Use a spoon to scoop out the seeds. Discard the seeds and
    then peel the papaya and cut into slivers or small cubes.

2. Place the papaya in a small serving dish and sprinkle with
    the lemon juice and brown sugar.

    Makes 2 servings
