    My tai chi students give me produce and food from time to time. One have me bittermelon she grew hydroponically. Unfortunately, I had to throw out two because they were overripe and ready to burst their seeds. I cooked up the remaing five.

    First, get almost enough garlic.

    Next, be secure enough to use a pink knife. What do I care the color, it will shave.

    My secret ingredient

    Stir fry with black bean sauce and let incorporate. Even my wife will eat it. After first avowing she does NOT eat bittermelon. And when she got her first taste, it was all she wrote and she eats the most of it every time I make it.

    Is your secret ingredient CAT, because that looks like CAT to me. Either that or a 6 week old Siberian Husky pup. They are about the same in texture, you know.

    I won't judge. ;)

    I was gonna say, even with that girly knife, it's totally a fancy man kind of meal. Definitely rockin' the primal thing, too.

    Looks yummy, Hanzo. Enjoy!

    You wouldn't believe how simple this dish is. But, I think it could win an award.

    Here it is served...

    Mahalo @Brokor. Last time I used wild bittermelon which are tiny and more crunchy because I leave the little seeds inside.

    Had to adjust your quote because I got a message saying I cannot use hashtags.

    Good to know, I will notify @melbo about that. All part of testing. You can click on the link for the hashtag, right?

    Yeah, tags aren't turned on for members to create yet, at least not until after we get them all sorted out, but if you can use the tags menu, we're all set. LINK: Tags

    @Hanzo I have noticed our forum search function has improved as well. Now when we search for something which is also a tagged term, it pops up on the search results.

    @Brokor, your call on hashtags, on or off. We really don't mind cleaning them up if it gets messy.
