Ways to use paw paw / papaya

Growing up we enjoyed a constant supply of paw paws (or papayas as some people may know them as) from our own paw paw trees. Its a lovely tasting fruit. Sweet, soft and relatively easy to grow. Even up until the day she died, Mum nearly always enjoyed a slice of paw paw before breakfast. Besides tasting nice, paw paw has many dietary benefits. High in vitamins, minerals, dietary fibre and antioxidants. It will be in season in September and if you can get your hands on a couple, give them a try. Here's a couple ways to use them I found on Pinterest.

  1. I've actually never tried a pawpaw.
    I'll have to in September, Like the Popsicle and the rice paper rolls.

  2. I have never had papaya either! Those look delicious though!

  3. Some great ideas there! I am going to be pinning a lot of them!

  4. Mmmm... these all look so good. Too bad I don't know where to get Papaya. Maybe in the southern states.
