4 Papaya Recipes to Brighten Your Day

Papayas are a versatile fruit with a buttery texture and tangy, tropical flavour. A ripe papaya should feel soft when applying light pressure and have smooth unblemished skin.

Did you know you can also eat the seeds? Papaya seeds can be repurposed as a substitute for black pepper. Simply rub the seeds with a dish towel to remove the slippery coating, spread them on a parchment covered baking sheet and bake on low heat until they break apart when crushed.

But don't worry about baking for any of these recipes - all you'll need is a knife, cutting board and a blender.
