"Mango Question" has inspired me to introduce Papaya Question. I buy the big Mexican papayas and ripen them hasta mas no poder in a brown paper bag. Then I put them in the sink and scrub them with a brush under running water, peel them, and cut the fruit into big slabs that are always in the refrigerator to eat with lime juice or be cut up in a fresh fruit salad. I can't imagine anything better to do with papaya than this, but am open to suggestions. Also, have heard the seeds can be used, but haven't tried it. What are other people doing with papaya?
