Papaya Pie

Papaya Pie tastes a lot like Peach Pie. Make sure the papaya is nicely ripened before cutting it open.

Cut papaya in half and remove seeds of 2 medium sized ripe papaya.
Peel the outer shell and slice pieces into small squares.

In a medium sized saucepan combine:
Sliced papaya
1/2 cup of brown sugar
1/4 cup pure maple syrup

Coat for 10 minutes before heating.

Next, on medium heat, bring papaya and juices to a simmer and lower heat. Cook for 10 minutes.
Remove from heat and add:
1 tsp cinnamon
1/2 tsp ground nutmeg
1/4 tsp ground cloves
1/4 tsp salt

Remove from heat and let cool before adding:
1 large egg beaten.

Season with extra maple syrup and brown sugar if necessary to taste.

Pour into pie crust. Bake at 350 degrees for 40 minutes. Let cool and serve.
