Veggie of the Week
Eggplant is one of those garden beauties that no one quite seems to know what to do with. My favorite technique involves slicing them thickly ( 1/2 " ), salting both sides and letting them drain under a weight into a sink for 15-20 minutes. Pat the slices dry. Brush with olive oil and run them under a broiler for 2 minutes on each side. Watch carefully ! At this point, they are delicious as is ( or can be cooled and frozen for later use in casseroles ).
Barbie Lytle of C & R Farms has been in the fruit business since she was a toddler. Her father ran Lucky 7 Produce, and taught her how to run a business. She has brought produce from C & R Farms to this market ever since we opened !
