Freezing bitter gourd.

Finally a bumper crop of bitter gourds this year. I'd like to save some for winter eating. I've seen them for sale in the frozen food section of Asian markets. Should they be blanched first or any other recommendations. Thanks.

Blanching is best for general nutritional value, though it will sharply reduce the amount of vitamin C. Of course defrosted bitter melon won't have the same crunch or texture, but it still cooks up quite well, especially when fried.
