Papaya Jam
Yield: 1 Servings

3 lb Firm-ripe papayas
3 c Sugar
1/2 c Lemon or orange juice
1 dash Salt

Wash papayas, cut in halves. Scoop out seeds and discard. Scoop flesh into bowl or pan and mash with a fork or potato masher. Measure out 3 cups.

Place crushed pulp into a kettle. Add sugar and lemon or orange juice. Simmer together, stirring occasionally to keep mixture from scorching, until it passes a jam test. This will take about 1 hour.

Ladle jam into hot containers and seal immediately. The mixture will thicken slightly when it cools. Fills about 6 6-ounce glasses.
