salting makes them sweat
Ready to freeze
Busy day "putting food by" for winter. I had three eggplants staring me in the eye on the kitchen counter. We had eggplant a couple times recently and it wasn't in the plan for dinner. Then I remembered my friend and neighbor, Deb, said that she would fry slices of eggplant up and freeze them to make eggplant Parmesan or eggplant burgers later. So, that is what I did. I salted the 1/2 inch slices to remove excess water, patting them dry after an hour and a half. I made a coating of some panko and bread crumbs, dipping the slices in egg first to make the breading stick, I then fried them in hot oil. I put them out on a pan in the freezer until morning when I will bag them up. I feel so domestic.
