My 4 year old son and 1 year old daughter just went out and picked every single eggplant off our bushes. :rolleyes:
They are the smaller globe types. Recipes anyone??

Some people make something called Baba Ganoush. Google it. I have cut them into strips/chips and dehydrated them. Pretty good scooping them into dips.

Got this off goneraw....delish. Lots of work, if you cut by hand, but worth it.
Don't know if I copied whose recipe...sorry. ENJOY!
Servings: makes about 6 cups
the italian eggplant classic,gone raw
1 medium eggplant,peeled, 1/4"dice approx 4 cups
1 cup tomato, 1/4" dice
1 sweet bell pepper,i used orange, 1/4" dice
1 celery stalk, 1/4" dice
¼ cup red onion,or more to taste, 1/4" dice
¼ cup olives of choice,i used a mix of green and black, 1/4" dice
2 tablespoon capers,optional, not raw
½ cup sundried tomato, soaked
½ cup olive oil
¼ cup apple cider vinegar
2 tablespoon agave, or 2 soaked medjool dates
1 tablespoon dried basil
1 tablespoon dried parsley
1 tablespoon dried oregano
1 clove garlic, or more to taste
all organic if possible
1.prepare dressing ingredients in magic bullet or blender.
2.pour over rest of ingredients,and mix well.
if you would like to reduce the amount of oil, replace with equal amount of tomato soak liquid:)
good right away or can be marinated several days in fridge.
i also made “caponata poppers” cut mini sweet bell peppers(red,orange,yellow) in half,remove seeds,fill with caponata and top with fresh basil and a sprinkle of pine nuts(pignoli).small tomatos may be scooped out and stuffed ,too! yummy as a bruschetta topping.
sometimes i make “not caponata”,replace the eggplant with 1 green squash,1 yellow squash and some mushrooms;)
