Papaya Pickles

After the recent weeks up North, my home is stocked up with heong peah, tau sar peah, peanut candies, brown sugar cookies and many other what-nots.

Fei sei hor ?

I tend to snack at night, which is a very bad habit. Somehow, when the night's quiet, curling up in my sofa with my favourite tele program on (most likely Channel 703 - another food program **sigh** ) .. I'll start craving for snacks, anything I can munch on.

Hubs no angel either, in fact, always instigating me to make him a nice cup of teh tarik.. which ends up with a cup for myself either.

I was having dinner at Hailam Village recently and they served very nice papaya pickles. So, I thought of making some for my night snacks. Less calories, more enzymes and vitamins, definitely healthier right ?

Very simple :

Raw papaya, coarse sugar and rice vinegar

Peel and slice papayas.

Marinate with sugar and vinegar

Ready to chomp in a week !!!

Crunchy, zesty, healthy and full of enzymes !
