What to do with all the Eggplant




This round of eggplant was planted late last year and is in full production now. While we use what we can fresh, we also don't want to waste the surplus. 

How to freeze Eggplant 
Wash.
Pierce fruit so it does not explode in the oven.
Bake at 350ยบ until fruit collapses.
Cool.
Remove skin.
Freeze. 

My freeze method
Place cooked eggplant in a gallon bag and don't fill it very full. Remove air and zip closed. Squish/flatten contents. Freeze flat or fold in half and freeze. This allows me to break off pieces and use instead of having to use the entire contents at one time. 

Add to soups, meatloaf, meatballs, hamburgers, and more.
