● 500 g papaya
● 400 g sugar
● 200 g water
● 1 cinnamon stick
● juice of 1/2 lemon
Remove the skin and the seeds from the papaya fruit, and slice into bite-sized pieces.
Put them in a blender and puree more or less, depending on how smooth we want the jam to be.
Next put the puree in the pot, and add the water, sugar and cinnamon stick and boil on medium heat.
Boil for about 25-30 minutes until the jam has thickened
Five minutes before turning off the heat add the lemon juice, stir, remove the cinnamon stick and remove from the heat.
To see if the jam has the desired consistency, put some on a saucer and allow to cool.
Once it has cooled tilt the plate slightly and if it is not runny, the jam is ready.
Allow it to rest for 10 minutes and then store in glass sterilized jars.
