Tummy Treasure

MSN photo

Papaya: tummy treasure. Imported we've seen them the size of a pear, and didn't buy any. Once in a while we find one that weighs a couple of pounds. The flavor is passable. In Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, Mom, Dad, LBJ and I bought one that weighed 17 pounds. With ceremony we sliced into the two-inch flesh revealing a handful of black seeds in the womb-like space. We feasted on its smooth, soothing-to-the-tummy goodness for several days. Foods taste better close to their source.
