Can you Eat Green Papayas?

• Ripe papaya fruit is best eaten raw, while green fruits are preferred for cooking.

Use scooped out papaya halves as a serving dish for fruit, chicken or seafood salads.

• Season green papaya with cinnamonhoney, and butter. Bake for a delightfully 
different side dish.

• Cut in papaya half, sprinkle with lime or lemon juice, port or rum, and a sprinkling of sugar for a quick, fresh fruit dessert.
• When adding papaya to fruit salads, add it at the last minute so its enzymes will not soften the other fruits.
Try substituting green papaya for winter squash. Drain off the white, acidic sap first before using.
• For a pepper substitute, try ground papaya seeds.
• If you are using the papaya for the fruit alone, peel first before slicing and seeding.
• Use only cooked papaya or pasteurized papaya juice in gelatins or it will not firm up.
• Pureed papaya added to a marinade will not only give a tropical flavor, but also tenderize meat and poultry.
• Overripe fruit can be pureed and used as a sauce for ice cream, a topping for pancakes, or stirred into yogurt.
• One medium papaya should yield 1 to 1-1/2 cups chopped fruit.
• One pound fresh papaya yields about 2 cups sliced.
• Fruits that go well with papaya: Mango, passionfruit, kiwifruit, and most berries.
• Complimentary herbs: Chives, cilantro, basil, mint, and rosemary.
