Last evening to family group bible study I brought a Papaya. I have been reluctant to slice into the super fruit because their are so many contradicting stories on the internet about the value of the seeds and outer peel. I was perplexed about how to treat it.
I decided I would prep the fruit and ask Karla for her advice. Here's what we talked about. She had Papaya as a youngster back home, She likes it, Her children do not. Green Papaya straight from the tree is handled differently from the ripe fruit that I prepared. The seeds need to be air dried and not oven roasted and then run through a coffee grinder to be used as a seasoning agent. The seeds will be bitter. Throw away the outer peel and do not eat. And most importantly ' If you eat it, in the morning, You will have good digestion all day '
Currently the seeds are sitting in a plastic container drying on the kitchen window sill. The peel is in the kitchen trash. And I took the Papaya chunks and mixed them into a cup of plain yogurt with diced cooked Beets and Orange sections. I will eat this for breakfast until gone. I call it Fruit of the Angels. It will not matter what else I have for breakfast each morning, I will begin to eat spoonful each morning until the novelty wears off.
Papaya, not only does it have a pretty sunshine color, but it has a sweet and pleasant taste, and good sources of antioxidant nutrients, minerals, vitamin A, C, K, and B vitamins, rich in fiber and more.
Papayas may help heart diseases, diabetics, prevent colon cancer, can help support your immune system. It is also good for your skin.Papaya is great for you, that is why it is called “The Fruit of the Angels”
