One Local Summer, Week 11: Eggplant
This week our box from the farm came with two eggplants. I peeled and sliced them up. Salted them to get the water out. Then dredged the slices in flour and lightly fried each one. Next I made a quick tomato sauce using CSA onions and garlic, plus a mix of our own tomatoes plus some from the farm. Finally I layered up the sauce, fried eggplant and slices of fresh mozzarella from our local Italian shop. This went into a hot oven until all was steamy and bubbly. It was a definite favorite. If I get more eggplant this week I believe I'll just have to do it all over again.
