Papaya Compote

Adding this luscious papaya compote to a slice or 2 of toasted sourdough - oh yes!

Thanks for the recipe @helen_goh_bakes


1 ripe papaya (about 600g after peeling + deseeding), cut roughly into pieces

200g castor sugar

½ vanilla bean (optional)

3 whole cloves

1 cinnamon stick

1 star anise

60ml lime juice (from 2 large limes)


Combine all ingredients in a medium saucepan + place over medium-low heat. Stir gently until the sugar dissolves, then increase the heat to medium + simmer gently, stirring occasionally for 30-40 minutes until the mixture looks like loose jam. Remove from heat + allow to cool - remove spices + vanilla bean. - then pour into a sterilized jar - (so delicious over ice cream!)
