Thank you for posting this recipe, it was pretty easy and fun! I had been looking for a fun way to use a ripe papaya that I had handy and came across this recipe. Instead of using Papaya Nectar I used pureed Papaya instead and it came out great! Also added about a 1/4 c sugar because I was worried that it wouldn't thicken enough, not sure it needed it, but it didn't hurt either! Thank you!

mine is still cooling, but i recommend turning the heat up to at least medium, the combined mixtures will then thicken the way you want.

This filling is delicious but mine didn't thicken as I thought it should but this may have been something I did wrong in cooking/cooling the filling. But we still enjoyed the pie! Thanks for sharing!
