Bitter cucumber is also called bitter melon, that's what it's called in England and Australia. I have only tried it once, I didn't hate it but I didn't like it either.

very interesting, htc - where are you located anyway?

Miguzi - do you like zucchini in breads, muffins or cakes?

Even if you don't like zucchini, you'll like this recipe--it tastes like potato pancakes!

Zucchini Patties

2 c grated zucchini
2 eggs, beaten
¼ c chopped onion
½ c flour
½ c grated Parmesan cheese
½ c shredded mozzarella cheese
Salt to taste

In a medium bowl, combine the zucchini, eggs, onion, flour, Parmesan, mozzarella, and salt.

Heat oil in a medium skillet over medium high heat. Drop zucchini mixture by heaping tablespoonfuls and cook for a few minutes on each side, until golden.

Why do you peel the squash, I just cut them in half, remove seeds and sprinkle cut side with fresh pepper, turn cut side down on oiled parchment paper and roast until desired doneness, then scoop out and continue preparation. I do not like shredding cabbage either, usually cut in wedges and steam or roast.
I knew someone would have easier way. If I would just take time to ask. I thank you norgeskog. I appreciate your time and you saved me lot of aggravation with preparing them. I love to eat them and this sounds like half the battle. Thanks for sharing. You can FEEL what I had to go through.

Generally I don't like cucumbers or zucchini, for the same reason, the slimy wet texture. But I have had cucumbers and zucchini that I liked, don't know what the secret is!

I love tomatos, but not in salad, except for the grape kind.

hmmm, homecook... you might try salting your cucumbers (sliced) and putting them in a colander in the sink or over a bowl to pull some of the moisture out of them. :)

If your okra is slimey - you're not cooking it right. Huh, marmalady?

The only vegi I don't like is one not cooked properly - and just about any canned vegis. About the only canned thing I like is creamed corn.
