Fresh Papaya 18oz (508g)
Sugar 6 1/4oz (178g)
Something you don’t know about me- I tend always to try something new, go to random places without reviewing a place, because it takes the fun out of it.
- First, slice the top and bottom off with a knife and toss that away
- Peel the skin of the papaya
- Slice in half
- With a spoon, scope seeds out
- Then cut into strips
- Line it up and dice it
- Put in pot add water and sugar
- Bring to a boil cook until fork goes through
- Put in Vitamix (blender)
- Blend until smooth
- Pour back into the pot and reduce it until you start to see the bottom for a split second. (look on video)
- Pour into a container and cool down

The Papaya that you had was green, should I use green?
You can green if you want of course will work fine, or you can use a ripe papaya you will notice has black seeds and use less sugar, about 25 percent less sugar.
If I have ripe papaya will it be different to the recipe?
Indeed, you will have to use less sugar; I would do 25% less sugar than suggested in the recipe.
Do not use a skillet, why?
Because it will spit everywhere and, believe me, you will be swearing and if not I will be for you…
If I am doing bigger batches can I use a stick blender?
You can. BUT! It will not be as smooth and will be chunky monkey
Can I freeze this?
Sure can! Should I do it? I would otherwise look at the next question
Does this mold?
Yes still can mold, took four weeks to see that happen
Doing this for 25 to 1000 people
Let’s put it this way! I hope you never have to cook this for 1000 people waiting to cook the water out, I would see this spitting everywhere! Then you will want to duck to turn off the skillet. After all, you will end up doing it burning your head. But if you are using a steam kettle you will be solid!
In this recipe, you will need bigger pots and pans, but you will still have to use a blender to get the chunky parts smooth.
When cooling it down for larger amounts just put in a 4-inch hotel pan or 2 inch
If you are doing for the following day, reheat in a double boiler if you can?
If not, just in a pan, kettle or pot.
