PAWPAWS ARRIVE THIS WEEK! ORDER NOW.


The pawpaw, North America's largest native fruit and a staple of both Native Americans and early pioneers, was once nearly forgotten. Thankfully, it's been rediscovered by thousands of fans who love the pawpaw's amazing tropical fruit flavor and creamy texture. The pawpaw's soft, custard-like flesh has a complex tropical fruit flavor, often described as a combination of mango, pineapple & banana with notes of vanilla & spice.

 

Here's how to store & ripen your pawpaws to perfection:
Pawpaws may arrive in varying stages of ripeness. Refrigerate them upon arrival, leaving a couple of the softer ones out to ripen at room temperature. Over the next 3-4 days, your pawpaws will slowly ripen. When dark spots begin to appear on the skin and the fruit softens (like a ripe banana), your pawpaws are ready to enjoy!

The first pawpaws of the season come to us from our growing partners in Indiana. These pawpaws are not identified by cultivar, but they are all delicious!

Enjoying your pawpaws 
While there are many recipes for pawpaw cakes, cookies, pies and puddings, many pawpaw fans insist that the only way to eat a pawpaw is fresh & fully ripened. It's true that many of the key components of pawpaw flavor are highly volatile and can be lost during the cooking process. Most experienced cooks agree that the most successful pawpaw recipes usually involve little or no cooking. 

 

The season for pawpaws is short, lasting only for a few weeks in the late summer and early autumn. Fresh pawpaws cannot be stored for long periods, so we must enjoy them while they are in their brief season. Fully ripe pawpaws last only a few days at room temperature, but can be successfully kept for a week or more in the refrigerator. For maximum flavor, allow the fruit to finish ripening at room temperature for 2 to 3 days before using. Never eat the skin or seeds.

Pawpaw Crème Brûlée
Many experienced cooks seem to be intimidated by the thought of making crème brûlée. That’s a real pity, because a great crème brûlée is not really that hard to make. It’s not that often that we get to have this much fun in the kitchen. I mean, you get to cook with a blow torch. Who can’t like that?
