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
- Place the papaya into a blender and process until smooth.
- 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.
- Set the mixture aside for a few minutes to cool and then enjoy warm or chilled.
