Taste it with some good quality Papaya

Delicious and Loaded With Nutrients. Papaya is the fruit of the Carica papaya plant.

Sauerkraut + fermented salad + kombucha + medicine + no waste – eat the whole fruit πŸ˜

The flesh of mature green papaya makes for pleasing to your taste #sauerkraut

Add carrot, daikon and small amount of spice.

For therapeutic purposes, leave green papaya skin on + add white seeds.

Papaya/ pawpaw black seed will over-power taste … makes a great pepper substitute – dried and add to grinder.

Green papaya skin is reputed to have the same benefits as the leaves.

Fermented salad …. mix a base of grated green pawpaw and carrot.

Massage with salt.

Add chopped; coriander, shallots including the green tops, ginger, turmeric and basil.

Minced lemongrass,🌢and sliced cherry tomatoes (not too ripe).

Add lemon / lime juice.

Make sure mixture is submerged.

Seal airtight.

Leave at room temperature for the fermenting fairies magic.

Taste test at 3 – 5 days.


The flavour will continue to evolve.

The leaves can be juiced.

They are bitter, but an amazing health tonic.

Platelet level can go from dangerous low of 8-10 to 300 in 3 weeks.

1 tablespoon 2-3 times per day.

Check with your health professional and do not take if pregnant or wishing to conceive.

A super energizing leaf tea is great alone or in #kombucha brewing.

1 tablespoon dried papaya leaves
1 tablespoon crushed cacao nibs
2 cinnamon sticks
1 tablespoon ground ginger

Mix cinnamon and ginger, boil in water for 10 minutes.

Add the rest of ingredients and steep for another 10.

The sun setting on the Ucayali, with the Andean foothills in the background, and the taste of freshly cut papaya in my mouth, restoring a body utterly shattered, made for one of those ‘ones to tell the grandchildren’ memories.
