    A friend gave me some turkey eggs and we've been enjoying them for morning breakfast.  The shells are very sturdy, as well as the membrane.  Remarkably, they taste like chicken .... eggs!

    We've tried to contact you by phone with no response.

    My husband and I would love to order half a beef from such conscientious husbandmen. We can't seem to find any testimonials of customers. We feel a little shy about sending money for a deposit if we can't find proof that you will supply the product in the end. We don't want a nearby farmer's beef. We want to purchase from the husbandman who raises the beef. This is reasonable to us. Afterall, the point is finding a reputable source.

    Can you satisfy us as a potential customers with some additional information on this bent? We have a deposit but are leary because there are so many scams these days.

    Hoping this isn't too good to be true.

  • 2 weeks 5 days ago by: Anonymous in reply to: The Bitter Melon Truth

    In a Taiwanese Vegetarian cookbook I discovered that cooking the bitter melon with the seeds will make the melon less bitter. I've tried it both ways and prefer the one with the seeds left in. I eat the seeds themselves, but it use to be a bit of a hassle because I wasn't sure if I should remove the shells first and use to crack them open one at a time to get to the meat out of the seed. I did find a site that said the seeds and the shells were both edible. But of course it's a personal preference. You can just spit out the seeds and not eat them at all. Even if you choose not to eat the seeds, the melon itself will be less bitter and since you're not sweating the bitterness out with salt, it'll probably retain all the health benefits. I think the change in flavor may work like how chili peppers are hotter with the seeds and membrane left in and you can control the heat if you leave out the membrane and seeds. So probably in the same way, you can control the bitterness if you leave the membrane and seeds in the bitter melon. Never thought about it, but maybe juicing it with the seeds in tact may make the juice less bitter too. I'm so excited to find so many interesting recipes on something as healthy as bitter melon that I'm thinking of planting some. I looked on Amazon and found that heirloom organic bittermelon seeds are less than $2.00 a pack. It's funny, just the other day, my landlord asked me if I would like to plant some vegetables in the yard. Amazing, life can be so serandipitous.
