Appreciating bitter (moved from Not About Food).

MobyRichard | Aug 6, 2007 11:49 AM

When I was younger I believed that I detested all things bitter. As I've grown older, howver, I realize that there are a number of my favorite foods/drinks in which bitter is an essential component. Two of these are dark chocolate and good coffee. Also, in recipes calling for eggplant I generally ignore directions to peel the veg because the purported bitterness of eggplant skin has never bothered me. Do any other good bitter flavors come to mind of you Chowhounds?
