I don't think it was eggplant parmesan (Melanzana alla Parmigiana)
or not.

Eggplant is kind of a slimy, squishy, vegetable so a lot of folks
dislike it. It's also hard to cook.

I only started using it recently.


Maybe it's a lot more common and liked in Europe and Australia than in
the US. Every country has its peculiarities. Americans love corn (and
bourbon). Japanese children hate green "bell pepper". Personally, I
love blanket statements.

Eggplant isn't squash. It's more closely related to tomatoes and potatoes.

Cindy Hamilton


Below it says that egg plant is sometimes referred to as 'guinea squash'.


When I quit smoking 16 years ago, someone told me there's nicotine in
eggplant. But you'd have to eat a box full of it, to get anywhere.

Not liking eggplant is new to me. If a lot of folks disliked it, I'd
have noticed. But maybe in the US.


I always thought why waste time with eggplant when you could order cheese lasagna?


That's like saying "why waste time with ice cream when you could order
Chinese takeaway".

I love eggplant and bitter melon, but I can understand why people can't stomach the stuff.

I find bitter melon much harder to appreciate than eggplant.

That's understandable. Bitter melon literally tastes like aspirin. The harder question is why do people love the stuff? I don't know. The Chinese believe that it has medicinal properties. It does seem to have a positive effect on blood glucose levels.


Maybe they can put it in pill form. People already take garlic,
ginger, turmeric etc pills. Why not bitter melon.


Oh, they already exist.

That makes as much sense as taking a steak in pill form. I don't eat bitter melon because it has an effect on blood glucose levels - that's not real important to me.

You and a couple of Chinese (roughly one billion) may be the only ones
who like the flavour, but if it's good for people's health -real or
perceived- a pill would make sense for the rest of the world's
population. And lo and behold, it already exists.

I don't believe in other people's tastes - I just believe in mine. I won't be buying bitter melon pills but I will be buying bitter melon. The Chinese got all kinds of ways to make bitter melon less bitter. That's just silly - I like it full on bitter. ?

If you like bitter melon, it wouldn't make sense to buy bitter melon
pills. Just like I'd rather drink red wine than buy resveratrol pills.

I detested green peppers when I was a kid. Now I like them a lot, and
like them even more when they are ripe.

Me too. I was surprised to hear that green ones are to Japanese
children what Brussels sprouts and red cabbage were to me as a child.
