Description

Candied papaya, a traditional dessert from Puerto Rico, is a delicious and refreshing treat. Sweet, and full of flavor, this is a great alternative to a baked dessert on a warm spring or summer night!

Ingredients

  • 1 whole Papaya (green And Firm To The Touch)
  • ¼ cups Baking Powder
  • 6 cups Warm Water
  • 1 cup Sugar
  • 1 teaspoon Vanilla Extract
  • ⅛ teaspoons Cinnamon

Preparation

Start by peeling the papaya with a vegetable peeler. Scoop out the seeds, and cut the papaya into 1/2-inch thick wedges the length of the papaya.

In a large bowl, dissolve the baking powder in the water. Let the papaya wedges soak in the water for about 10 minutes.

Remove the papaya from the water, and rinse under cold water for 1–2 minutes.

In a medium-sized pot, combine the sugar and the papaya. Cook, covered, under medium-high heat for 20 minutes. Stir occasionally, but do not add water.

After 20 minutes, add the vanilla and the cinnamon, and cook the papaya over low heat, uncovered, for another 25–30 minutes. The dulce de papaya is ready when a thick syrup forms.

Cool slightly before enjoying!

Makes 1 jar.

Adapted from a family recipe.
