bitter leaf is very tasty. Especially if a tiny bit of bitterness is left in.

I like bitterleaf.i use it for egusi and okro  cheesy soups.Nothing beats the after taste especially after a glass of cold water.

~I use to think b/c of the name,the sauce will actually be bitter too grin but my Nana Cooked it w/ Fufu for me & i was pleasantly surprised how nice it tasted . . I'll only eat it if my Nana cooks it tho!

~Back Home Bitterleaves is considered "Fufu Soup" & cooked on its own,Is cooking it w/ Egusi/Okra normal for naija Folks?

right!bitter leaf's sweet after taste cannot be compared to any.really i think its name should be changed 2 sweeter leaf(the more you eat it,the sweeter it gets)!

bitter leaf is good. it is always the first thing i take when leaving nigeria. it is a sweet leaf.

I love bitter leaf, sadly my husband is averse to it. I heard that some people remove the bitterness by parboiling the leaf. Is this possible? I only know about washing it thoroughly to remove the bitter taste.

To y'all that don't like bitter leaf, you are missing. Try bitter leaf sauce with boiled yam kisskiss it's like going to heaven grin.

My dad always asked for it to be blended into a drink. He then drinks it and asks us[children] to drink it, saying it was for good health. Its real bitter but not that bad.

No one answered my question, can bitter leaf be parboiled to remove the bitter taste?
Re: I Love Bitter Leaf(ewuro) by BenHundred(m): 5:53pm On May 16, 2009
Whatever.
Re: I Love Bitter Leaf(ewuro) by dominique(f): 7:15pm On May 17, 2009
benhundred, you don't have to be nasty, the guy was just asking a question.
