西甲下注 Richie Allen got a nice surprise when Rebeka Dickson delivered some chutney and jams made from his pawpaws.

What do you do with 93 kilos of pawpaws? You make chutney and jams of course!

西甲下注It’s always a good deed done when you help out the CWA ladies but when Richie Allen offered them 93 kgs of green pawpaws they were stunned.

西甲下注The Bangalow CWA’s Charmian Bourne says the team were not daunted. ‘We were given bags and boxes of them to deal with in our own way. As we peeled and blended the pawpaws we shared ideas and used fruit to substitute the lack of flavour with cumquat, citrus, passionfruit, and others’.

The 93kg of pawpaws made 200 jars of yumminess.

西甲下注Charmian says they also pickled them with herbs, made chutney, relishes and even a cake flavoured with banana.

西甲下注‘Rebeka Dickson counted over 200 jars and put our own label on them. We do hope that people can enjoy the pleasure of pawpaw.’

西甲下注Chamian says the next big cook-up will be marmalade. ‘I think I will be going easier and I’ll also cook my mother’s tomato chutney – tried and true’.

    西甲下注WIth this area’s bountiful produce, it’s necessary to preserve it in an many ways as you can think of, lol! I’ve had to learn how to make all sorts of jams, marmalade, sauces, chutneys & I had to buy a freezer just for the mangoes, bananas, guacamole etc. What a lovely problem to have!!!
