They are more tender the big ones can be full of tough seeds and the skin is tough too so choose carefully.Mark Harvey12 monthsI'm a total disaster ❄️😂stripybag12 monthsHi @ Mark Harvey, luckily my wife organises the freezers😂.stripybag12 monthsThank @ latif, I will try that this weekend 👍latif12 monthsIn Mauritius we are very fond of bitter gourds. We do them in a very simple way: just fried with onions and some garlic. If you want, you can slice in a tomato. It’s a dry fry. And as you mentioned, an ideal accompaniment @stripybagstripybag12 monthsI tried bitter gourds as an experiment and liked then, Hari included a recipe for stuffed gourds which I haven’t used yet. The gourds in the local market are too small to stuff, I need to go to the Exotic to buy some large ones. They are a good accompaniment @boo,@Mark Harvey and @ latif👍🎃👻Mark Harvey12 monthsI wish my freezer was so organized @stripybag I've no idea what half of the contents are 🤔😂latif12 monthsMauritian pumpkins are very sweet! @boolatif12 monthsReally @boo!!!! I wouldn’t have bet cent on that!!!!boo12 monthsI just checked on the Internet and discovered, strangely enough, bitter gourds and pumpkin belong to the same family!!! @stripybaglatif12 monthsSince we are in Halloween mood, and remaining in the context of vegetables, I would say bitter gourd is the exact opposite of pumpkin @stripybaglatif12 monthsIn Mauritian creol/dialect, when we speak about “bitter gourd days”, we mean that those were bad days, days of penury, days we don’t want to re-live again...bitter days...bitter gourds😢 @stripybag @booboo12 monthsI must confess that bitter gourds is a challenge for me @latif @Jo dunn @stripybagboo12 monthsLovely curry! @stripybag But I think I won’t have the courage to eat bitter gourds 🤭Jo dunn12 months@latiflatif12 monthsSorry @stripybag!
