Fresh Papaya With Cane Sugar and Rose Water… Something Special For Everyday

At times this is a staple in our house. It’s just so brainlessly easy to make, and so ridiculously delicious, I love having it on the table to go owith whatever else is rummaged up.

Fresh papaya is so succulent and rich… like juicy butter! It’s such a wonder that it has no fat in it. How does nature do that???\

Adding a bit of cane sugar balances out the quirky cheesiness of the flavor (and of course, you can leave its natural sweetness alone if you like!), and the rose water… well, the rose water makes it taste like candy. Or the way candy wishes it tastes…

It’s easy to eat half of this by oneself. Definitely make this with a whole giant papaya, because it keeps nicely in the fridge and makes for something delicious to pick up when you’re craving a little sumpin’ and feelin’ lazy.

And if you feel like switching it up for some variety… just use Orange Blossom water instead!




Recipe for: Fresh Papaya With Cane Sugar and Rose Water

  • flesh from one giant papaya, cut into slices
  • 1-2 tablespoons raw cane sugar (optional)
  • 1/2-1 teaspoon rose water (depending on how aromatic you want it)

Combine all ingredients and gently toss in large bowl. My recommendation is to start with a heaping tablespoon of raw cane sugar and a full 1/2 teaspoon or the rose water, toss well, and see how you like it. You can always add a smidge more sugar and rose water if you’d like.

To be honest, sometimes I’m in the mood for this to be sweeter and rosier and sometimes… not. Find the right taste-zone for your own mood.

And enjoy…
