I promised my readers more purple and here it is.
An edible purple fruit, eggplant. Call it a vegetable if you must.
I got three small plants from the same source in June.
All three have been producing fruit for months.
This is the biggest plant. It is sprawled out like a large shrub.
I have had to prop up its limbs to keep the fruit off the ground.
With all this eggplant, I have had to get creative with recipes.
Eggplant Parmesan, eggplant lasagna, eggplant sauce on spaghetti-squash, eggplant casserole, ratatouille…
Still the eggplants keep coming…and it’s October.
I wonder how eggplant would taste with pumpkin spice?
If you want some, let me know. I will share with plenty to spare.
Purple food. What a wonderful world!
