Local Plant Life

There is an eggplant on my table. Taking suggestions for what to do with it.

That eggplant parmesian dish that you made for us was actually pretty good.

Other than that, I say put some ears and a tail on it and tell Puck it is a mouse. Save your stomach some grief!

The trick to eggplant is to sweat it before you cook it--the juice is that makes it bitter. After you slice it, lay it out on paper towels and sprinkle it with salt to draw out the moisture. Leave it for about half an hour and then pat it dry with paper towels. Then you can fry it, saute it, whatever. I had no idea. The internet is a beautiful thing.
