Bitter Melon Is


Indian kerala = bitter melon

bitter.  very.   but look how funky they are!  we had to try.

soaking in heavily salt water helps. fry in butter with onions & garlic & Thai eggplant. love the crunchy seeds.  an acquired taste I think, and despite not loving many bitter tastes (especially those from the cruciferous veggies), I seem to like this.  go figure… although, I do love dark chocolate.
