Give me your vegetables and I will turn them into beauty queens!
Experiments with exotic/unknown/unexplored/never eaten/strangely looking groceries.
Take 3: Karema - bitter melon (would you EVER guess?)
Taste: raw - bitter, fresh,crispy, grassy (if you have ever eaten fresh grass);
fried/cooked: a bit less bitter, tender, the seeds become soft when cooked, a bit like beans...
Smell: fresh grass. I thik becuase the green skin is very thick.
