Adventures in Fruit: Bitter Melon

I found this weirdo at our local market and frankly I’m at a loss. After doing some preliminary reading I’m discovering that this native of Asia is basically the holy grail of bioactive compounds.

The only reason you aren’t seeing it at your vitamin store is that from my first try, it tastes not unlike earwax. Don’t worry: I’ll give it a go but bear with me, people.

This is Christie, signing off.
