The papaya is an exotic tropical fruit native to Central America. They are available year-round in most markets. They bring an exotic touch to savory dishes and desserts.
In traditional Chinese medical science, papaya is beneficial for skin care and repair. You can use papaya to treat or eliminate old dead skin cells, dandruff and other skin disorders and even to reduce the signs of premature aging.
The ripe fruit is usually eaten raw, without skin or seeds. The unripe green fruit of papaya can be eaten cooked, usually in curries, salads and stews. It has a relatively high amount of pectin, which can be used to make jellies. Now, we would use ripe papaya to make Jam.
Peel the papaya, dicing, and put castor sugar on the papaya.
