I am not bitter, are you? -little bitter melon I had this idea when I heard a local song* here in my country, in our language that says, "di ako bitter", (I am not bitter). But I will not talk about that further, rather, I will just share with you the recipe of my mother that I really love. It's an appetizer. As you can see on the photo, my mother makes use of little bitter melons and vinegar. She also adds a little salt, pepper, some cloves of garlic and sometimes, small white onions. She soaks the bitter melon in vinegar. It's not bitter at all. I let her make this last week. Have you tried it? *Bitter Song by Calla Lily

Seriously, try this - slice the ampalaya into small bits and sout them in pinapple juice with some pineapple chunks. Put it in the ref overnight. The next day you'll have a great appetizer. BTW, when you slice the ampalaya, let them drop on very cold water to keep them chunky. When everything is sliced, that's the time you throw away the water and pour in the mixture of pineapple juice with little chunks.

So, this is what you are talking about in my previous post about the bitter gourd or bitter melon. Does, it really have to be the small ones. Well, I have read that the small ones, since they are young hasn't developed yet the bitter taste, so that' why maybe it's these small ones for this appetizer. I will try this when I find some small bitter gourd.
