Papaya is ripe when it turns orange, yellow or redish. Green ones are hard and not ripe. Longer pawpaw are sweeter than the rounder ones.

Ways to Eat Papaya:

  • as an appetizer with strips of ham or prosciutto wrapped around it
  • in a salsa with tomato, onion, coriander and lime
  • in a salad with avocado, chicken, olive oil and a little vinegar or lime
  • in a chutney with mango, red pepper, avocado, onion, coriander and balsamic vinegar
  • in cookies with walnuts
  • in bread
  • jelly – blend it up and use some grass-fed gelatin to make it special.

One great thing about papaya is that it freezes so if you find a lot or a big one, freeze some in cubes until you want it. You can put it in a smoothie even.

Hopefully this has gotten you inspired to eat more pawpaw. Until next time!
