Bitter Melon Garden Pops by AW Illustrations

Tokyo, JP


If you want something tangy for refreshment on a hot summer day, these rich vitami C pops are the ones you should go for! But you have to be a bit careful because raw bitter melons are really BITTER! So, in order to reduce its bitter flavor, I recommend you should slice them thinly and sprinkle a pinch of salt, then after 15 minutes, wash the salt off. When I first tried this recipe, I carelessly sliced them rather thick and didn't salt them. So they tasted super-duper BITTER!! Please don't make the same mistake as mine except only when you want something ultra punchy!
