He was talking about the tropical, sweet, buttery fruit papaya. I had never bought a papaya until this summer when I saw they were at the peak of their season. I decided to experiment with using the fruit as an addition to a salsa I typically make. And the result was delicious because of an unexpected sweetness.
I didn’t use the entire papaya for the salsa, so I froze the rest in slices. The next morning I added a couple frozen slices to my smoothie for added sweetener – yum!
