Pie Month: Papaya Pie

In honor of Thanksgiving, I'll be rerunning my old pie posts. This one is just for my friends in the tropics, in case you want to make a harvesty pie but don't have pumpkin or sweet potatoes. Originally run Nov. 13, 2008.

This is not my recipe! You can find it here

I did change it a little bit. About 2/3 cup brown sugar, no white sugar. No salt, since with the humidity here salt tends to clump up. I also added 1/8 t ginger, and used a regular crust instead of a graham cracker crust (which, if you had it, would be very good).
What a wonderful recipe for November in the tropics. It tastes harvest-y, like pumpkin or sweet potato pie, not at all like ripe papaya (which I don't really care for). And I got the fruit free from my housekeeper.

Yummy, yummy. I love papaya. As a fruit, as jam, as anything. But I had never seen it as pie. I will now have to convince the other three quarters in my household to let me try this recipe :-).

Greetings from London.
