You can find videos on Youtube about the health benefits of bitter melon. They are supposed to be excellent for blood sugar control and to cure diabetic. But many of them talk about raw green juice or cook them which is A) too much work and B) quite yukky to taste. I read that a better method is to make tea. And that's just what I did. Cut them up and threw them in the dehydrator. Voila! dried bitter melon for tea. It doesn't taste bad at all. Unlike what green bitter melon juice would taste. As usual, I cook big. This is a large quantity of bitter melon. Enjoy!
