We have lots of papaya trees in our garden. We usually eat the fruit or make some dry stir fry curry with the raw papaya.
We can make chewy papaya candy from the raw ones. I had always thought it to be a long process however recently, I did a lot of research and was surprised to know that it is very easy to make papaya candy.
We can also make and preserve the candy. We usually add it in cakes and puddings. The candied papaya is called tutti-frutti in my native language. We usually get it in different colours from the shop. Here I am using beetroot to colour the papaya candy.
