I really love simple things. Especially lately. I feel crazy with planning, crazy with visiting relatives, crazy when I get home from work at 11 pm and have to be back at 6 the next morning. The only time that I’ve felt calm this past week is when I went for a night run on Wednesday with a bunch of people I’ve never met before. It was good. Just sweat and headlamps and easy conversation.
This recipe is easy too. It’s not papaya juice, it’s papaya water, which is exactly what it sounds like. Fruit waters are just as good as juices…maybe even better, because they last longer and you have better control over the flavor balance.
Aside from peeling and chopping the papaya, this recipe is rather effortless. It’s pretty prefect for a Friday in early spring, when you want to spend less time cleaning the kitchen and more time enjoying the warm sun on the trail.
