Bitter melons boast the highest nutritional and medicinal value of any vegetable.  It has long been used as a traditional medicine to fight diabetes.  The flavor is true to its name though it is a pleasant bitterness. Bitter melon can become an acquired taste or craving much like black coffee or dark chocolate.



Uses: Bitter melon is best paired with strongly flavored foods such as fermented black bean, smoked meats, and soy sauce. Adding sugar while cooking can also temper the bitterness.
