Papaya - delicioso!

Papaya is one of our main crops. We grow papaya in Mexico all year round. While papaya is not one of the favored fruits of the U.S., it is catching on. It is great for digestive problems and if you are prone to bruising.
This is the way we serve papaya. It is peeled, the seeds removed and cut up into bite-size pieces. Fresh lime juice is squeezed on top of the papaya and some people like to sprinkle a little Tajin (pronounced ta-heeen) on top. My husband prefers sea salt. In our opinion papaya that is the color of a sweet potato is the best. Give it a try. You just might like it!

You know I just don't care for papaya but I will give it another chance and tart it up a bit with the lime juice. I know it is so good for me.
I have a suggestion for you when you leave a comment on my site or others where it isn't working properly.
First off make sure you are signed in to your Google account then try leaving a commment as a Google user. If that doesn't work use the name/url choice instead of anonymous. Type in your name in that line and then put your web address in the url line.( That way we can find you more easily. I am sure you are missing out on many visitors by not having the url there.

I enjoyed learning about Tahin. The lime is the perfect dressing. Thanks for linking up to Foodie Friday!

My husband loves Papaya and I buy it for him all the time! Next time I'm going to try it with some lime juice!

Sorry I could not find our e-mail address so I will answer your soapstone comment here.

We have soapstone in the kitchen, butler pantry and in my bathroom. And we have grantite in 3 bathrooms. I really don't like granite much but it seems to me that granite is easier to clean then soapstone.

Soapstone has to be cleaned and then oiled to keep the it a true black. During the 1st month you oil the soapstone every week or so but now I oil my soapstone like every 3 months.

I know people always say soapstone chips but we've had no problem with chipping at all and our kitchen is heavily used! However we do have a chip in our granite that was not there a month ago. Not sure what happened and I doubt anyone would notice unless I pointed the chip out to them. I found it while cleaning the bathroom just this week.

If I was doing my kitchen again I'd still install soapstone. We truly love it.
