|We had a great year for eggplants. I have been breading and frying them most of the summer.|
Recently I decided it would be nice to marinate them for a change. First I peel and cut the eggplants into strips. Then I bring 1 part white vinegar and 1 part water to a boil. Shut off the flame and put the eggplant strips in and let them soak for about 3-5 minutes. I drain them and let cool. Next I squeeze as much liquid as I can out of the eggplants and lay them in a paper towel.
Now I chop up some garlic and oregano and mix it with the eggplant strips. Add a little olive oil and put it in a jar. Add a hot pepper and the top it off with more olive oil and voila we have marinated eggplant. You can serve this in an antipasto, put in a sandwich, or top it on a crostini.
Anyway you decide to serve it, It tastes delicious.
