My husband’s grandmother sometimes sends us fruit, which we love, but sometimes I already have a few varieties in my refrigerator and end up with two watermelons, or in this case with two papayas. With only three of us, including my three year old (as you can guess… she’s not wild about papayas), I had to think of something to make with the extra fruit. All I knew is I didn’t want to make a beverage out of it. Then, it occurred to me: Papaya Bread! Can it be done? I searched and searched for a recipe but none of them “spoke” to me. Finally, I found a great one from Eat the Love. The original Papaya Bread recipe calls for crystallized ginger and white chocolate, which I decided to omit and I added cinnamon, shredded coconut and nutmeg to the mix.
Now I need to figure out what to do with the 15 oranges I have in my basket! We’ll probably eat half of them with salt and pepitoria (powdered squash seed)… yum! Now, what to do with the rest? No juice, no jam… I’m thinking something baked. I’ll let you know what I come up with!
