OK, so I’m not really going to include a recipe here. But what we did was bread and fry up some sliced eggplants (you know, dip slices in a little beaten egg, then dredge in seasoned breadcrumbs). We did do a little experiment with salting half the eggplants first, which I seldom do. I have found that when making ratatouille or baked eggplant, that, as long as the eggplant is super fresh, I never need to peel or slat. However, the slices we slated and drained first soaked up less fat when frying. Other than that, they were the same.

We then made little sandwiches with two eggplant slices and mozzarella, baked until all melty and topped with a tomato coulis.  Use a simple recipe here..just tomato, garlic, s & p, and a little olive oil. Some recipes like to drag the ginger or honey into the mix, but it would overwhelm here.

About stillmansfarm

Stillman's Farm® is a family owned farm in Massachusetts. We currently operate at two locations: a greenhouse/retail business in Lunenburg, and the majority of vegetable production in New Braintree. Glenn Stillman started the business in Lunenburg over 20 years ago and now enjoys the promise of the next generation further expanding the very diverse enterprise. The farm also has several Community Supported Agriculture (CSA) programs established in Boston, Lunenburg, Jamaica Plain, Brookline, New Braintree and the Southborough/Framingham area. In addition, the Stillman's trucks have become a fixture at the Boston Area Farmer's Markets. Our Philosophy Most of Stillman's produce is grown without chemicals. For a few crops this simply is not feasible. For these particular crops, we participate in the State Integrated Pest Management (IPM) program. This entails systematic scouting of fields, protection of beneficial insects, bio-controls, and well-timed applications of only the safest pesticides. With growing concern about genetically modified organisms (GMO), as a patron you can be confident that none of the produce we grow have been engineered, in fact, we often experiment with many heirloom varieties! Conscientiously Grown® The combination of no pesticides, good cultivation management, and IPM practices allows us to offer the widest possible selection of fruit and vegetable varieties and be a thriving sustainable farm. We have developed our own label, "conscientiously grown" to convey our commitment to the safety of our environment, family and customers. All of our hormone free, pasture raised meats carry a conscientiously grown label too!
