Just picked.

I know some I shall roast and blend with garlic. And some I shall make into a dish with cheese and tomato sauce.

And some, I shall just grill.

Anyone know any amazing ways to make them great?

If you have an Asian grocery nearby, look for a mix called 'Mabo Nasu' by a company called 'Cook Do' - it is a hot and sour sauce. You make a stirfry with ground beef, garlic, eggplant, and this sauce. I also put some unsalted cashews in it and serve over rice - very yummy ;)

We slice them really thin, coat with egg, then flower, then fry them.

Then we make a caserole where we put some tomato sauce in the bottom, then a layer of the fried eggplant, then a little bit of sauce, a little bit of shredded cheese, keep repeating...

Then you just bake it for like 20 minutes or so just to get it warm and the cheese all melty.

It takes forever to make... but it tastes amazing. We made a ton of this last weekend.

What ashley said. A simple breading (or none) and saute in olive oil. Serve with your favorite red sauce and some cheese. The slices do grill up well too.

Now for the naif amazement portion of my comment: Wow! You GREW those things?!? I am in awe! What a beautiful harvest of little alien heads! (Remember Coneheads, the movie???)

Those are so pretty! Sorry, I can't help you with a recipe, I've never had them! :)

Wow, you grew those? Yum.

Ratatouille. (spelling?)

Eggplant parmigiana.

Baba ganoush (spelling? again)

I have an eggplant cookbook downstairs. I'll consult it in the morning and send you any other ideas.

OH, yeah, it has a recipe for Japanese-inspired eggplant and beef with soy sauce and red bell peppers. Very yummy. I'll have to look that one up for you.

And wow, those pictures went really well with the colour scheme of your blog. Made everything look even yummier.

My garden is a mess this fall, I stayed away too long during summer. I wish I had the skills/time/climate to grow stuff too.

I love eggplant. I grew it one year. It turned out great!

Help..... The veg are taking over... not enough space in the freezer...

First pumpkin harvested. weighed in at a mighty 37lbs !! (thats just over half the weight of my 5yr old) Pie anyone ?
Onions are all set out drying along side the garlics (which did really really well !)

A pair of Lavender turkey's, 4 Norfolk bronze turkey's (all young birds) and 4 Shetland geese which we hope will soon be joined by 2 shetland ganders.

We're holding our breath here, the grain crops are almost ready to harvest, what we dont need this week is wind & lots of rain.

And we have new additions which i will take pics of soon !!!
