Eggplant Recipes

Aug
25

Hi one and all. I am looking for ways to use the eggplant I grew this year. We have had all the common dishes you find all over the internet. But what I am really looking for is a way to preserve to use this winter. Any thoughts? Can it be pressure canned or BWB in a recipe? I am really stumped and don’t want to waste it.

Thanks.
Phyllis

    If you can wait til next week end, we are trying an eggplant roll-up appetizer and stuffed eggplant for our International Dinner from Azerbaijan.

    Thanks Riley’ Mom.
    That will be terrific.
    The plants are still bearing prolifically.
    I am sure to have more on hand next week… sigh.

    To preserve it, a lot of people put it up as caponata. I’ve never done so, but let me go find a recipe for you…..

    Hi one thing I have done this year is hollow out small eggplants and strung them up to dry. I did 20 kilos and that equals just over 200. With the part I took out I cut up into small pieces and am drying that on a cloth in the sun. With the hollowed out eggplants you stuff them after letting them sit in water overnight and then cook. Very nice, very easy but time consuming you can do the same with bell peppers(capsicums) and any hot or sweet large chillies.

    Thanks for the information Simcha. And, wow that must have been a lot of work and must have kept you busy.
    I ended up steam blanching the sliced and peeled eggplant for 3 minutes and then dehydrating them in the Excalibur I have.
    I never knew nor, thought they could be dried until someone on one of the Yahoo groups I belong to told me it could be done.

    So, last night was the dinner. The eggplant rollups were a definite hit! Even though there was quite a bit of garlic, they were good. I tried both mayo and sour cream and used cilantro. Two small eggplants made about 10 rolls.
    The stuffed eggplants were good, too if you like a stuffed pepper, tomato kind of dish. The eggplants actually had a little bit of a sweet taste.

    Thanks Rileysmom for the update. I went to the site for the recipes but, couldn’t find the roll up recipe. Could you tell me the name of the recipe or, give me the page link?
    Thanks.

    Simcha,
    I didn’t boil the eggplant, I only steamed them for a couple of minutes. I was told it helps with removing the bitterness.
