PrintEmail The flavors intensify the longer it sits around. Serve it with any savory dish, or with toast and cheese. Ingredients 1/2 cup minced red onion3 cups boiling water3 to 4 -- medium oranges1 -- ripe papaya (1 pound)1 dash salt1 teaspoon minced chipotle chiles1 tablespoon fresh lemon or lime juice1 tablespoon cider vinegar1 tablespoon light-colored honey Instructions Place the onion in a strainer over a bowl in the sink. Pour in the boiling water, and let it drain for at least 5 minutes. Peel the oranges, then section them over a medium-sized bowl, to save all the juices. Cut the papaya in half lengthwise, and scoop out the seeds. (You can reserve them and use them as a garnish.) Dice the pulp, and add it to the oranges au jus. Add the remaining ingredients (including the onions), and mix until thoroughly combined. Store in a tightly covered container in the refrigerator for up to two weeks. Serve cold, topped with the reserved papaya seeds, if desired. Makes 2 cups. Note: Use chipotle chiles out of a can. Wash your hands and cutting surface after preparing them.
