1/2 cup sugar
1 tsp unflavored gelatin
1 papaya (about 1 lb), peeled, seeded, and cubed, about
1 3/4 cup cubes
4 tsp lemon juice
In a small saucepan, combine sugar and gelatin. Add 1/2 cup water.
Cook and stir over low heat until sugar and gelatin are dissolved;
set aside. In a blender container or food processor bowl, combine
sugar mixture, papaya, and lemon juice. Cover; blend or process
until smooth. Pour into a small mixer bowl. Cover, freeze fruit
mixture 2 to 3 hours or until almost firm. Beat with an electric
mixer on medium speed about 2 minutes or until mixture is fluffy.
Transfer mixture to a 7 1/2 x 3 1/2 x 2 inch or 8x4x2 inch loaf
pan. Cover; freeze at least 4 hours or until firm. To serve, let
stand 10 minutes at room temperature. If desired, garnish with
fresh mint. Serves 4.
