Name that fruit
I mentioned last week that I love the Berkeley Bowl's produce selection. I decided I'd try a few new things each week to learn more about them.
My first selection was the Indian bitter melon. Apparently it's often used in varios Asian cuisines, and one Punjabi recipe serves it stuffed with spices and fried in oil - proof that anything fried is tasty. It also is purported to have medicinal qualities for digestion.
