Clean your hands and nails before you start to do it. I better say it here at the beginning :)

Sauerpawpaw Fermented Pawpaw Papaya The Recipe:



1. Green pawpaw or papaya, skinned, cleaned and shredded on the largest holes of your shredder
2. Salt, 1 flat tablespoon per 1 kg shredded pawpaw
3. Garlic, cleaned and chopped or shredded on the smallest holes of your shredder.

Mix shredded pawpaw with salt and garlic in a large plastic bowl while pressing and squeezing it with each move with your hands. Press to the bottom of the bowl and leave covered for about 30 minutes. Move and press it into a fermenting jar firmly so the entire juice stays on top of the jar. You should have enough juice to cover the shredded pawpaw in the jar. If not, boil one cup of water with one teaspoon of jar, cool down and add to the jar.

Important: No pawpaw pieces should float on top. All your fermenting veggies should always be kept under the juice so they have no air contact.The best is to cover the pawpaw with some clean cabbage or kale leaves. I have once kept it under the fluid with some celery sticks. it works as well!

Let it ferment until ready. It takes about 10-14 days. Keep in fridge from then. Enjoy!
