Bitter Melon!

bittermelon This is sautéed biter melon stuffed with roasted peppers & cheese.

Biter melon is a lumpy wart covered vegetable that I ran across at an Amish market in Dover, Delaware. It’s apparently used a lot in asian foods, though I had never seen it before. Also as the name suggests it’s very bitter so it needs to be paired properly with foods and flavors that will balance out it’s taste.
