Warm Gingered Papaya

Here is a recipe that appeared in the _A` la cartoon_ column of the
Vancouver Sun (11.6.97).  I've modified it slighly to reduce the sugar.

Warm Gingered Papaya

2 strawberry papayas (also called pink pawpaw etc)
1 tbsp lime juice
1 tsp lime zest (grated peel)
1 tbsp minced preserved ginger in syrup
2 tbsp liquid honey (I ommitted this)
Freshly grated nutmeg
Fresh mint sprigs
Lime wedges

Halve papayas and remove seeds.  Don't peel.  Put in 13 x 9" baking dish,
sid by side.  Combine limejuice and zest, ginger ± honey and drizle over
the top. Bake at 350F till tender.  Cut into 1" slices and arrange on a
platter and spon juices over.  Dust with nutmeg. Garnish with mint and lime

I found that this was so good cold (before I cooked it) that I ate
a whole papaya for lunch - just dipping the fruit into the lime juice.  I
wish they were as cheap in Canada as they are in Australia!!!  Strawberry
papayas have none of the bitterness of other kinds.
