EGGPLANT: THE BASICS
Outside North America, eggplant are also called Aubergine [pronounced OH-ber-zheen or oh-ber-ZHEEN].

Eggplants are not vegetables, but fruits, specifically berries. The skins of young eggplants are both delicate and edible; older eggplants or eggplants with tough skins may be peeled. Since the flesh discolors rapidly, an eggplant should be cut just before using. Globe eggplant are large, purple cylinders. Italian eggplant or baby eggplant are smaller versions of globe eggplant with more tender skin and flesh. Japanese eggplant, or Asian eggplant are long and narrow.

You need an APP :-) Any plans for that?

I've been thinking so, yes, Ilene. :-) Any ideas on how it would work?

My fave way to eat eggplant: slice it into rounds, along with yellow squash and zucchini (mushrooms too, if you have them). Toss with olive oil, salt and pepper and throw it in a grill basket outside on the grill. SO good.

We love eggplant in Ratatouille, and I make a hearty ratatouille type main dish by adding white beans. I just made our version of eggplant lasagna (cheeseless) last night and that was a hit too. Something about eggplant baked with tomato and garlic is just magical!
