mashed ripe papaya
1 1/3 (1.75 ounce) packages
Yummy! I didn't have any orange juice so I used lime in its place I really liked the different flavor.
This is a great jam. However, it can be improved upon. I like my jam with a little more zestiness. So, instead of using orange juice I have used lilikoi juice (which is a Hawaiian passionfruit). That is fabulous. People keep telling me to eat papaya with lime juice, so I just tried that - substituting the orange juice with lime juice. Also great. Both make the jam 'pop'. yum.
I love this jam! We have had a ton of papaya from our tree and so glad I found a recipe I can use for all of them! Tried it with orange juice and just used only 1 package of pectin. It came out perfect. I'm going to try lemon juice on the next batch!
Nice jam! I had some fresh tangerines on hand so I squeezed a couple of them in instead of orange juice... delicious. A great way to take advantage of the giant papayas that go on sale in the Mexican market. The color is gorgeous.
The Best EVER!
This was yummy. Mine did not set quite as well as i would have liked, however it was my first time making Jam. I used only one package of pectin per another users review, maybe that is where, I went wrong? I don't know. It was still a yummy and a fun way to use a bunch of papayas that my neighbor gave me from her tree
Excellent taste very easy to make. i am a novice at this jelly thing and i found it so easy to make. i changed it up alittle bit though, i added some pineapple puree to it and about 10 whole habaneros with excellent results
Very nice flavour, but didn't set too well. I keep the jars in the fridge so this helps keep the jam firm enough. Great as an icecream topping.
