Ingredients: Descriptions and Photos
Papaya, Large Red

(Papaya, large red)  The large red papaya (photo above) ripened to this yellow color on our countertop.  Select a papaya that is firm and free of blemishes and damage (the brown spotting is natural and is present even when the papaya is still green).  A papaya is a real treat for breakfast, dessert, or a snack (see our recipe).  Save the seeds to make a great salad dressing.  See the nutritional chart (below) for raw papayas.

The large red papaya is harvested from the tree while still green (see full size photo), and shipped.  This one was still green when we purchased it.  A papaya will ripen on the kitchen countertop.

As the papaya begins to ripen on the countertop, the skin begins to yellow.  (see full size photo)  The photo of the fully ripened papaya is above.

This is the inside of a ripe large red papaya that has been split in half. (see full size photo)

This is an enlarged photo of the seeds inside a large red papaya. (see full size photo)

The above recipe is in keeping with God's creation intent (Genesis 1:29-31):  'Then God said, "I give you every seed-bearing plant on the face of the whole earth and every tree that has fruit with seed in it. They will be yours for food.  And to all the beasts of the earth and all the birds of the air and all the creatures that move on the ground-- everything that has the breath of life in it-- I give every green plant for food." And it was so.   God saw all that he had made, and it was very good.' (NIV)  Let no animal suffer or die that we may live!  (d-18)
