One of my personal favorites—papaya! Visit my posts starting from August 1, 2011 to read more in my series about Hawaiian fruit.
Did you know all parts of the papaya are edible? But eat the skin of an organic papaya to avoid chemicals and pesticides. The skin is also used in some countries to treat rashes, cuts, and sunburn.
The seeds are like peppercorns and can used to add a little zip to recipes. Check out my Papaya Seed Salad Dressing recipe on my recipe pages, or click to go to the blog post from November 18, 2010. It’s a great tasting dressing and so unique.
Here’s a web site that gives lots more information on all parts of a papaya and the plant, how they can be (and are) used, and many nutritional facts.
Join me again next week for more fun with fruit!
Mahalo for visiting!
