MsCellany, clearly papayas have wronged you and your family in the distant past.  My sympathies, and if you just tell me which mannerless fruit it was, I'll make sure to use THAT one in my dish. :)

I intend to cook the rice separately in chicken broth and make the sauce, then combine.  I'll let y'all know how it works out.

Now if only it would cool off enough to cook! Hates summer, I does.  Hates it. :P

I apologize for derailing the thread with my lust for vengeance.

Use any papaya you wish. Just be sure to kill the seeds with a flamethrower.

Do an extra one for me, pretty please?

I don't want all the papayas dead....just very far away from me.  I sometimes have to reach across them to get avocado and mango at my grocery. *shudder*

Hey, if I get to use a flamethrower to kill something, I don't care WHAT you want me to point it at, because, flamethrower.  ;D

Papaya is a natural meat tenderizer. You can find it in juice form or in bottled form by the spices.  You might find it at an International Import grocer if not in your regulat store.  Also papaya pulp are often sold in frozen sheets.

For the papaya lovers:  let me tell you about the time my wacky neighbor planted 4 million papaya seeds in every available spot of dirt in my yard--and they all came up.

Oh, so your neighbour is related to my dad. If my dad plants a seed, it grows.  Which means that the year he discovered that zucchini comes in two colours and planted an entire packet of each was a really, really interesting year.  ::)

Too bad papaya doesn't grow up here, I'd be so tempted to give my dad a handful of seeds.  >:D
