How do we use this product?
Green papaya are most often used in savory dishes, as they have little of the tropical sweetness associated with ripe Hawaiian or Mexican papaya. Grated into salads it has a crunchy, cucumber-like texture and mild flavor.
Season green papaya with cinnamon, honey, and butter. Bake for a delightfully different side dish. Cut in papaya half, sprinkle with or lemon juice, port or rum, and a sprinkling of sugar for a quick, fresh fruit dessert.
Green papaya can be cut into cubes and steamed for 5-7 minutes or cooked on stove top with some water or pressure cooked for one whistle.
Conventionally grown, not organic. We recommend ozonating.
