lemon and sugar optional


Directions:
Look for richly colored papayas that give slightly to palm pressure. Scoop the seed from the papaya. The seeds are encased in a gelatinous envelope, I find it best to break them and wash the seed thoroughly. Allow the seeds to dry to completely dry about three days on the countertop. Grind seeds using a food processor or coffee grinder ground papaya seeds have the same consistency as finely ground coffee. Serve hot or chilled.
