Eggplant

vegetable

Growing:

Start seeds indoors a couple months before last frost date, or obtain young plants for direct planting in the garden. After danger of frost has past, transplant in garden about 1 foot apart. Harvest when eggplant is young and shiny, the bigger/older they get on the vine the more tough and seedy they will become.

Selecting & Storing:

Eggplant should have a deep purple color, be firm and free from blemishes. Store in refrigerator on the top shelf (the warmest part of the refrigerator) for up to a week. They can be stored at room temperature for a couple days. Deep refrigeration is not good for them.

Basic Preparation:

Rinse eggplant and cut off stem end. To bake, cut the eggplant lengthwise from end to end, brush the cut side with vegetable oil, season as desired, place in a shallow baking dish and bake at 425° for about 25 minutes. Scoop out "meat" of the eggplant, or slice with skin left on.
