This recipe comes from a friend of mine from Trinidad. She serves these candies every Christmas.



  1. Squeeze excess juice out of the grated papaya.
  2. Measure the papaya: to every cup of papaya, add ¾ cup sugar.
  3. Mix the papaya, sugar, lime peel and lime juice in a saucepan.
  4. Cook slowly over medium/low heat until the mixture "gels".
  5. Add a few drops of food coloring.
  6. Cool.
  7. Shape into balls and roll the balls in granulated sugar.
