I told you a while back about an older man telling me about his mother
making them apple pies using green papayas instead of apples . He must
have been well into his nineties. So, was a very long time ago. Well I
had to try it myself. Peeled a crock pot full of green papayas and I
was nearly finished with them when my hands started to hurt. Felt like
they were frost bitten. Especially around the nail beds. I had a hard
time getting to sleep because of the pain. Still was very painful all
day yesterday. But just sore this morning. Does anyone know anything
about why this happened? Oh, the pie was nothing to write home about.
But way back then the mother probably used what was available to feed
her family. Here she probably couldn't find apples . As we can today.
Was a very interesting experiment , though I'm sure I want try it again,
ha. , Kate
Thank you for the concern. As I said, they do feel better this morning.
Though very tender and sore. You could be right about the tenderizer effect
being the problem. I want be trying this one again, ha. Hugs Kate
