papaya

I read that papaya seeds are edible. If true, does anyone know a way to use them to their full potential?

What an interesting question, I have never eaten the seeds but immediately looked it up here is a great article http://superfoodprofiles... They say the taste of the seeds is very strong, peppery/mustardy but is tolerable. The article has some suggestions on how to use them,

Thank You, Suzanne for the information and the link. It was an interesting article. I think I will try them as a pepper substitute, and also as a salad topping as fernetaboutit suggests below. I am more of a sweets person, so I imagine the taste would be too much for me. But I'll try one from the next papaya I buy.

Thank you all for your responses.

They do have a very strong peppery taste. I sprinkle them on salads!

I wonder how they would be blended into tomato juice along with garlic and other things for a homemade bloody mary mix.
