    This recipe is from Mozambique, Africa! It is an unusual, but delicious dessert. Looks so pretty and orange! Adapted from Afri Chef. Cook time is estimated, I have not made this yet.

    1. 1
      Add the papaya, lemon or lime juice and water to electric blender and blend on high for about 45 seconds. Scrape down the sides of the blender with a rubber spatula. Repeat the blending process until the mixture is a smooth puree.
    2. 2
      Using the back of a spoon, rub the puree through a fine sieve into a 2 quart stainless steel pan.
    3. 3
      Add the sugar, mixing well to ensure even distribution. Add the cloves and cinnamon stick. Bring to boil over high heat, stirring constantly.
    4. 4
      Cook until a few drops of the mixture immediately form coarse threads when dropped from a spoon into cold water. (The mixture needs to be stirred regularly, until this point is reached.)
    5. 5
      Remove the pan from the heat and using a slotted spoon remove the cloves and cinnamon stick. Discard the cloves and cinnamon stick.
    6. 6
      Using a whisk, beat the egg yolks vigorously, in a deep heat proof bowl, for about a minute, until the yolks thicken slightly.
    7. 7
      Pour the hot syrup into the egg yolks in a thin stream, beating constantly and vigorously. Continue to beat the mixture until it is smooth and thick. It should be a deep bright yellow in color.
    8. 8
      The mixture should be divided into 4 individual heat proof dessert dishes and left to cool to room temperature. The dessert will continue to thicken while it cools.
    9. 9
      The dish should be served immediately when it reaches room temperature, or it may be completely chilled in a refrigerator before serving.
    10. 10
      The lemon/lime zest may be sprinkled on top of the dessert before serving.
