Any recipes for green papaya?

Molino, FL(Zone 8b)

Hi, I grew a papaya tree for the first time this year just for fun. Now I have several very large but green papaya's on the tree. I doubt they will ripen before our first freeze. Surely not all of them will anyway. I have no idea what to do with them so all suggestions are welcome. They are beautiful I don't want them to go to waste. Just had a thought. Could I slice and dehydrate them too?

My grandmother used to make pickled green papaya. Shouldn't be hard to Google a recipe.

Google Philippine TINOLA recipe.

I just googled the recipe and if I was cooking it I have few changes.

substitute chayote for papaya
Sea salt for fish sauce-- fish sauce is an acquired taste , it will make your kitchen smell LOL!!!
add 2 tbsp of soy sauce low sodium so the chicken as well as the broth has a little coloring.
I love tinola and our children loves it too.
