Fresh papaya rain down from my papaya shrub daily. I simply can't throw away food, so I have created a healthier low-fat (3.8 grams total fat) crustless holiday cheese cake from fresh papaya puree spiced with freshly ground cardamom and topped with pecans. Serve this dessert cold (without a crust) right in the ramekins. If salt is a concern, look for a low-sodium, fat-free ricotta cheese or low-sodium, fat-free cottage cheese to reduce the sodium content. The preparation time can be shortened by using prepared papaya puree and ground cardamom, but flavor is lost and sodium and fat increase.
