4-6 people


  • 4 cups shredded green papaya
  • 1 lb. brown sugar
  • 2 cups Champagne Wine Vinegar
  • 6 whole cloves
  • 6 peppercorns
  • 6 sticks of cinnamon


  • Wash, peel, and seed papayas. Cut into thin slices or shred with a food processor. Boil sugar, vinegar and spices for 10 minutes. Add papaya. Boil together until the papaya is tender.
  • Remove papaya and boil syrup 10 minutes longer. Add papaya and bottle it to use as a snack or to accompany a meat dish. Better yet, use it in your favorite green papaya salad recipe.
