How to eat
Papaya leaves can best be boiled for 30 minutes to reduce the bitter taste. After that you can stir-fry the leaves with, for example, some sambal and garlic. The leaves are also used to make herbal tea. Bring the water to a boil, add the papaya leaves and let them cook for a while. Then pour the water into a tea glass, add some honey and drink. In Mexico, the leaves are often used to cook meat.
