  1. What does “25 l of water” mean?
    What does “0.05 l (1/20 th) liter on the measuring cup, rum” mean?

    1. Let’s make this easy. A small bottle of rum is 1/10 of a liter. So use 1/2 of a small bottle of rum that. Help

  2. What does “25 l of water” as well as “0.05 l (1/20 th) liter on the measuring cup, rum” mean?

  3. 1. “Put these slices in a bowl of cold salted water. Bring to a boil, drain them.”
    Please explain, how much of water and salt should I use for 1 kg of papaya.

    2. “Take a baked dish and place the papaya quarters vertically and tightly. Pour in the sugar, vanilla, rum and water.”
    How much water and rum should I use for this step?

    1. Gert, thank you very much. However, in the ingredients list there is 2.5 liters of water. How much water I should pour together with sugar, vanilla and rum on step 2? Maybe you can tell this from your experience.

    2. Gert,
      Does salted water on step 1 mean “enough cold water to cover papaya” plus 1 pinch of salt?
