Papaya isn’t something that I have eaten much of in my life. The last time I bought papaya, it wasn’t good, which I think turned me off. What made me decide to give it a try again? About 2 weeks ago I tried a smoothie at the Yoga studio with papaya in it, and it was delicious.
The next time I was at the market, I picked up a papaya, and decided to give it another chance. I made sure to let it ripen completely, which I think might have been the problem the last time I tried papaya. Not quite ripe. Yuck.
Once the papaya was ripe, I cut it open and removed the interesting looking seeds inside and scooped out all the flesh. Pretty good actually, and even better in a green smoothie.
