• Eggplant

Eggplant is an oblong, glossy fruit with a deep purple hue, meaty texture and savory flavor. Both healthy and versatile, eggplant is found in many of the world’s cuisines and can be used as either a side dish or as a main course.

Care & Handling

Selection: 

Look for eggplant that is firm, glossy and deep in color. Avoid eggplants that have any bruises or cuts.

Storage: 

Eggplant is highly perishable and is best when used within a few days of purchase. Store eggplant in refrigerator or in a cool, dry place.

Preparation: 

Cut off green stem and chop eggplant into cubes, slice into discs or cut in half lengthwise. Eggplant can be prepared in a variety of ways baked, broiled, grilled, fried or more! Removing skin is optional.
