Pahoa Papaya Pie

For a smooth custard, puree papaya before adding other ingredients.

1 large ripe papaya (about 1 1/2 lbs.)

3 eggs About 2/3 cup sugar

1 cup half-and-half (light cream) or whipping cream

1 teaspoon vanilla

1 9-inch unbaked pie shell Lime slices

1 cup whipping cream

2 tablespoons finely chopped candied ginger

Cut papaya in half; scoop out seeds and discard. Peel papaya; cut 1/4 of it into thin lengthwise slices and set aside. Cut remaining fruit into chunks and puree in a blender. Add eggs, 2/3 cup sugar, half-and-half, and vanilla; whirl until smooth. Pour into pie shell. Bake in the lower third of a 425| oven for 15 minutes. Reduce heat to 350| and continue to bake until custard is firm in center when jiggled, 15 to 20 minutes. Let cool at least 30 minutes; serve warm, or chill as long as overnight. Top with papaya and lime slices.

Beat 1 cup whipping cream until it holds soft peaks; add sugar to taste. Spoon into a bowl; top with candied ginger. Serves 6 to 8.
