      I didn't know much about bitter melon, other than what I've read. My husband picked one up at an ethnic grocery store and after learning what it WAS, I searched for recipes to use it. This was, by far, the easiest one, and we think it was very tasty. In the future we will use this as a brunch dish for our friends who like to try different things.
