bittermelon

This is one of the more baffling foods on the planet. It's intensely bitter, yet people seem to love it. My mom grows these beautiful white ones (they're usually a light green color.)

bittermelon with black bean & garlic sauce
I'm actually not the biggest fan of bittermelon, but D really loves it. But, if you put enough black bean and garlic sauce on something, it will be good, even if it's got a bitter undertone.
[bittermelon, black beans, garlic, soy sauce, vinegar, water, cornstarch]

chinese sausage
These are really tasty, sweet sausages. They're a fresh variation of the dried Cantonese lop cheung.
