first harvest: bitter melon salad pickle

i was able to harvest my very first bitter melon this
afternoon and made salad pickle(pickle salad) with it.
cabbage, bitter melon, carrot, cucumber
all slice very thin,
sprinkle bit of salt and let it sit for 10-15 minutes
add vinegar & sugar
chill in the refrigerator for about 2hrs
i thought my oregano never flowers...
but finally blooming this year.  this means,
i can probably collect the seed! 



  1. bitter melon looks so weird.
    like a melted candle.
    i don't think we have this kind here.
    you salad has very pretty colors!

  2. Thanks for the recipe, Coco; I didn't know how to cook bitter melon. Fran

  3. I have never had bitter melon before. It looks very pretty. I am assuming that it's taste is bitter!?!? :0)
