I have been trying to comment on the previous comment and for some stupid reason, I can't even comment on my own blog site.....sometimes I hate technology!!! Anyway, I had some witty, intelligent comment about fruit and veggies, which doesn't sound witty and intelligent when you try and put it in a comment about 10 times! So....this post is just to say....that if a teenage boy who has very rarely eaten veggies and another teenager that always has, says that green pawpaw is nice as a veggie, than it must be! Don't knock it until you try it!
I've just discovered pawpaw as a veggie! I've made an Asian style pawpaw salad before, which is really nice, however cooking it as a vegetable is delicious. I've only used really green pawpaws for both. As a cooked vegetable it's very similar to parsnip in taste. I've tried it roasted as well as fried. It's really nice fried in butter with garlic and onion. If you have a tree, give it a try, you will be pleasantly surprised.
