A few days have passed since we made the atchara. Using our handy dandy fruit juicer we proceeded to go where no papaya has gone before. It was an experiment that would shake the household.
I was surprised at the local vinegar's price as 1.5 Liters of it only cost 10 PHP or roughly $0.25. It was pungently potent and if it were only packaged more attractively I'm sure it would fetch a better price elsewhere.
The only problem with our atchara preparation was that the papaya strands were too fine. I liked how Andok's fried chicken did theirs which was slightly crunchy as if you were munching something while eating the litson manok.
