papaya and egg yolk pudding
a sample of the pudding recipes contained in the african recipes cookbook 
1 medium  sized ripe papaya
5   egg yolks
2 cup  sugar
2 or 3   lemons or limes
1/4 cup  water
4 clove  whole
3   inch piece of stick cinnamon
peel, seed and coarsely chop the papaya. squeeze the lemons or limes to 
obtain 1/4 cup of strained juice. using a very fine rasp rub the 
lemon/lime peel to obtain 1/2 tsp of zest. dd the papaya, lemon or lime 
juice and water to the jar of an electric blender and blend on high for 
plus minus 45 seconds. scrape down the sides of the blender jar with a 
rubber spatula. repeat the blending process until the mixture is smoothly 
pureed. using the back of a table or dessert spoon, rub the puree through 
a fine sieve into a 2 or 3 quart stainless steel or enameled pan. add the 
sugar, mixing well to ensure even distribution. add the cloves and 
cinnamon stick. stir constantly while bringing to the boil over high heat. 
cook until a few drops of the mixture immediately form coarse threads when 
dropped from a spoon into cold water. (the mixture needs to be stirred 
regularly, until this point is reached.) remove the pan from the heat and, 
using a slotted spoon, remove the cloves and cinnamon stick. discard the 
cloves and cinnamon stick. using a wire whisk, or electric beater if 
preferred, beat the egg yolks vigorously, in a deep heat proof, bowl, for 
about a minute, until the yolks thicken slightly. 
pour the hot syrup into the egg yolks in a thin stream, beating constantly 
and vigorously while doing so. continue to beat the mixture until it is 
smooth and thick. it should now be a deep bright yellow in color. the 
mixture should be divided into 4 individual heat proof dessert dishes and 
left to cool to room temperature. the dessert will continue to thicken 
while it cools. the dish should be served immediately it reaches room 
temperature, or alternatively it may be completely chilled in a 
refrigerator before serving. the lemon/lime zest may be sprinkled on top 
of the dessert before serving. go on! - enjoy something different!
