When to pick eggplant?
This is my first year with eggplant. I think I have black beauties (whatever is the most common deep purple round one)
The largest so far is about the size of a softball, and it looks like I'm going to have plenty more on just 2 plants!
How do I know when it's time to pick them? I'd hate to wait too long and have them go bitter or something!
Also, does anyone have ideas on how to freeze them? Should I salt, blanch and freeze? Uses for frozen eggplant?
