island breakfast

on a trip to the grenadines years ago, the women at the frangipani hotel would go out every morning and cut a few 'paw-paws' from the tree, slice them up and serve them for breakfast. in the middle of winter, papayas are still available and this little taste of the tropics hits the spot.

1 lg or 2 sml papaya             espresso or strong coffee
2 limes                               steamed milk

Slice the papaya in quarters, lengthwise. Squeeze one whole lime on top.Sprinkle with salt. 

Throw 1 clove in the filter and brew coffee. Fill cups halfway, and top with steamed milk and a sprinkle of nutmeg.
