Spoon this slightly sweet and spicy fresh papaya sauce over pies, ice creams and cakes. Not only is it delicious but its intense red-orange color makes a beautiful garnish.


  • 3 cups fresh papaya, seeds removed (about 1 medium red papaya)
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup fresh orange juice
  • 4 tablespoons water
  • dash cayenne


  1. Place the papaya into a blender and process until smooth.
  2. Transfer the papaya puree to a saucepan, and then add the orange juice, salt and cayenne. Mix well to combine and then bring the mixture to a boil, stirring constantly to prevent sticking. Boil the mixture for 2 minutes and then remove from the heat.
  3. Set the mixture aside for a few minutes to cool and then enjoy warm or chilled.
