Very tasty! Not sure I'd say it's quick to make, with such a long cook time, but it's definitely easy (very little hands-on time). The amount of sugar seemed like a lot when I put it on in the beginning, but it's not so much once it liquefies because you lose a lot of it in the basting part. My papaya was pretty firm, so it could stand up to the full 1.5 hour cooking time, but softer papayas would probably only need about an hour or so. I recommend a light coating of cooking spray on the foil, because the spilled sugar syrup sort of glues the papaya down a bit. I accidentally dumped out the liquid when I was trying to remove them from the pan and had to spoon it back in, so my photo isn't very pretty, but the taste was divine. Now I need to make this again and chill them so I can compare the warm vs. cold to see which is better. Thanks for posting! Made for the Emerald City Shakers for ZWT7
