Here ya go..send us some where you are done making it and we'll all act as your "testers" and let you know what the advantages and disadvantages are from eating it.


PAPAYA CANDY

Ingredients:
2 1/2 lbs. firm papaya
2 lbs. sugar
lemons

Cut the papaya into fine strips, then peel and wash well. Place the papaya and sugar on on a slow fire until the sugar dissolves. Cook for ten minutes, then set aside for a half hour. After a half an hour reheat at a higher flame, until the mixture becomes sugar-like or crystalized. Shortly afterwards remove from heat, and, using a spoon and fork, mold into different shapes

I don't think anyone knows what you're talking about. To me, bumping is something I let the airlines do to me so I can get free tickets for another trip happy

You might want to Google "preserving papaya". I don't know anyone here who locally preserves candied papaya as we simply eat it fresh in season. Many of the local supermarkets sell prepackaged preserved papaya along with other preserved tropical fruits but I think you'll have way better success doing a general Google.
