I’m Gonna Give You Candy…

PAPAYA CANDY
1 ½ lbs firm papaya
1 lb sugar
fresh juice 1 lemon

Cut the papaya into fine strips, then peel and wash well.
Place the papaya and sugar on a slow fire until the sugar dissolves. Add the lemon juice, cook for 10 minutes, then set aside for 30 minutes.
After 30 minutes reheat at a higher flame, until the mixture becomes sugar-like or crystallized.
Remove from heat and let cool for 5-7 minutes.
On wax paper, using a spoon and fork mold into different shapes. Or use molds that you’ve bought, cleaned and sterilized first.
