Had some fruits today and searched the fridge for some pickled papaya I thought we had. Turned out it was finished some time back.
So before I knew it, Mil was already at work making a new batch of pickled papaya. She's just amazing.
The secret of it is to use a peeler to make fine slices of the fruit. The it's the usual sugar, salt in hot water and then add in vinegar and chilly. The fruit should sit for a few hours before it's good to taste. After 24 hours, it'll be even better.
Mmm... tangy and spicy.
Will come back and tell you about our busy weekend.
