The BEST way to eat papaya
I don’t know about you, but I have tried papaya many times and the flavour.. or aftertaste just doesn’t do it for me. So I never really wanted to eat it. That’s until I tried it at its perfect ripeness with lime squeezed all over it. I’m not sure where I first got the idea to try it this way, but this is now the ONLY way I will eat it. It’s such a refreshing snack…. the sweetness of the papaya and the sour lime juice is the perfect food marriage. I let the papaya ripen on the windowsill until it is completely yellow-orange in colour and has brown-green speckles all over the outside skin. If you gently squeeze the fruit, it should be soft. This will let you know that the papaya is ready to eat!!
- 1 Ripe Papaya
- 1 Lime
- Cut up the papaya in small bite-size chunks; Cut the papaya lengthwise, scoop out the seeds, then gently cut off all the outside skin, put the papaya flesh on a cutting board, cut in strips, then into small chunks.
- Put cut up papaya in a bowl.
- Cut the lime in half (Depending on the juiciness and how much lime you like, you may just need half).
- Squeeze the lime over the papaya.
