    My wife always was averse to bitter melon until she try the dish I made. Now she eats most of it every time. And we have some growing out back.

    Today, I used a harvest of melon and leaves (leaves are more bitter) to make a dish for my wife.

    Oops, sorry, it came out blurry.

    So coupled with some poor, yet very delicious pig...

    I like it spicy too. That is an individual add-on afterwards, since not everyone does.

    Thanks...it was tasty. Bitter melon is supposed to be very antioxidant and even anti-cancer, from what I read. I prefer the wild strain, like the ones I use. Heard they were great pickled, but never tried that.

    This batch was cooked with a load of garlic and black bean sauce.

    I should have added, "But manly!" Was not inferring anything. Heard him say that on a Big Bang Theory rerun.

    No offense, Dont. And thanks for being gentle with me. Wait, that sounds wrong, but you know what I mean.
