2 quarts pureed slightly green papaya
2 cups brown sugar
2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon ground cloves
To make the papaya puree: cut the papaya into small pieces and boil until tender. Drain off the water and crush the fruit or puree in a blender.
Blend all ingredients thoroughly. Heat on stove until sugar dissolves.
This is a good substitute for apple butter. It can be spread on bread like a jam or warmed and used as a topping for pancakes.
