Ready for steaming then will be tossed in vinegar, olive oil, spices, then chilled. This is PAPAIT in Ilocano ["sarsalida" in Tagalog]. Twice as bitter as ampalaya leaves and probably the bitterest of all vegetables. I don't know the nutritional value but according to Abe V. Rotor in his blog, PAPAIT contains, among others
  • Phosphorus, 0.11%
  • Calcium, 0.11%
  • Iron, 0.003%
Well, if it's green it must be good.

Love to hear what you think!
