anyone used green papaya shreds in a jar!?

Right, so having moved somewhere stupid-far away from the tropics and not having such easy access to ingredients necessary for Thai food.. I have discovered that the local Asian grocery sells JARS of shredded green papaya (I think the ingredients were papaya, water, salt?).

Before I rush out and try to make som tam with it, has anyone used this and was it any good?

I'm guessing, but don't know, that it might be a good idea to rinse it a bit if it is stored in slightly salty water?
