  7. :whistling:Eggplant Cooking Hints (1) Do not cook in an aluminum pan. Aluminum makes eggplants discolor. (2) The skin is edible in younger eggplants. Remove the peel in older eggplants. 3) Cut each fruit before using, just like bananas. The flesh of the fruit will brown. 4) Eggplant absorbs oil very easily; coat your eggplant with breadcrumbs, cornmeal or flour first before frying. (5) To help reduce the bitter flavor in older eggplants, slice the eggplant into ½ inch pieces and salt heavily. Weigh down each slice in a colander and allow for the liquid to drain out of the eggplant for 30 minutes. Rinse each slice with cold water and pat dry. This method is called "dégorgeing". It is best to use this method before frying. (6) In order to bake your eggplant, slice your eggplant in half. Score across the interior of each half. Add tiny slices of garlic to go into each score. Salt each half, and bake in a 400-degree oven for 30 minutes. The eggplant is done when it is nicely browned and tender when pierced. (7) When wanting to roast your eggplant, cut your eggplant into 1/2 inch slices. Toss in olive oil, salt, pepper and any of the other suggested spices below. Arrange the eggplant in a single layer in a baking dish (not aluminum). Bake at 400 degrees for 30 minutes. The eggplant is done when it is nicely browned and tender when pierced. Spices: Basil, chervil, cumin, garlic, mace, marjoram, nutmeg, oregano, parsley, sage, savory, sesame seed, tarragon, thyme Equivalents / Substitutions: 1 pound = 3 1/2 cup diced raw = 1 3/4 cup diced cooked = 4 servings Nutritional Values: Eggplants contain Vitamin C and Potassium. Other than these two nutrients, eggplants do not have a significant nutrient value. Eggplants also have anti-bacterial, diuretic effects, as well as flavonoids (cancer fighting anti-oxidants) . 1 cup cooked contains 25 calories. Suggested Wines: Depending on how you fix your eggplant, try drinking a Chardonnay, a Grenache Rosé or a Zinfandel.
