2 medium Carrots, peeled, greens removed, cut into 1/2-inch-thick spears
2 tbsp. Olive Oil
2 Garlic cloves, thinly sliced
1/2 orange Bell Pepper, thinly sliced
1/2 yellow Bell Pepper, thinly sliced
1/2 white Onion, thinly sliced
2 sprigs Rosemary
2 sprigs Thyme
14 oz. Green Papaya, peeled, cut into 1/2-inch-thick spears
2 Jalapeños, cut into 1/2 inch thick spears

Scrub the carrots well, removing any dirt or tough skin. Place the cleaned carrots in a large pot of salted water until bright orange, about 2 minutes; drain and run under cold water until cool.
Heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add garlic and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Add bell peppers, onion, and herbs and cook, stirring, until crisp-tender, about 5 minutes. Add carrots, papaya, jalapeño, vinegar, and 1 1/4 cups water.
Bring to a boil, reduce heat, and simmer until vegetables are crisp-tender but soft, about 5 minutes. Season with salt; let cool.
Using a pair of tongs, arrange vegetables upwards. Pour liquid until they are well covered.
Let cool, cover and chill.

Once again our guest Chef Shelly Gilad from Shelly’s Humble Kitchen shares a recipe for delicate alfajores, a traditional biscuit with milk caramel filling that is famous throughout Spain and Latin America.
The modern chutney was born from a mix of Indian spices and chili peppers from the Americas and it’s a popular condiment to enjoy with a ‘picada’, a mix of different cold cuts, cheeses and nuts in Latin America.
