Bitter Melon Recipe
An acquired taste, the bitter melon aka bitter gourd, draws out the sweetness of other flavours creating a harmonious balance. I recently had a very nice Surinamese bitter melon dish in Amsterdam, unable to find the exact recipe but it was similar to this recipe for Steamed, stuffed bitter melon with black bean sauce.
For all things bitter melon see the National Bitter Melon Council's web site: www.bittermelon.org
