Papaya Jam

One of the most popular desserts in Cabo Verde is goat cheese with papaya jam. You may not have had papaya jam before, but you’re going to want to try it… and I’m going to teach you how to make it!

Jam Ingredients --Papaya --Sugar --Vanilla --Lime juice

Add all of your ingredients into a small pot, and mix them to combine.


Cook until the ingredients in pot begin to boil. Turn the heat to simmer at a low, rolling boil for about 25-30 minutes, stirring occasionally.


Cook until the desired consistency is reached. The jam should hold its own shape when you run a rubber spatula through it.


Your homemade jam is not canned with preservatives. You can save your jar for about 2-3 weeks in the fridge,


Papaya typically has a lot of naturally-occurring pectin, so it is unnecessary to add pectin.
