Bitter Melon and Chayote Greens
I tried the bitter melon greens and the chayote greens with mild success.
The bitter melon greens were so bitter, I couldn’t eat them. They cooked much more quickly than anticipated, but, I think even if they were slower to cook, I wouldn’t have been able to get them any less bitter. Maybe if I had let them sit in salt water overnight? Anyway, I’m really not too disappointed with the way they turned out – it was sort of expected.
The chayote greens took longer to cook than expected, so they didn’t go with the dish I made as well as I was hoping. Next time, I’ll know to cook them longer so they break up a little better.
