Ron, that reminds me somewhere in all my cookbook madness I 
have a wonderful little one called 'recipes from a Greek Isle', 
(probably isn't exactly the name, I can't remember offhand.)
 I'll see if I can dig it out and find out what the 'locals' do with 
eggplant. I know for awhile I was seed swapping with a family, 
amazing the things that'll grow there will grow in our region of 
I sent them cowhorn okra, figured it'd grow like gangbusters but no 
one was sure what to do with the stuff. (Pretty much the reaction I 
get with okra here too.) 

Back to eggplant. John doesn't like it, says it's bitter and always 
gives him heartburn. I have tried growing the little thin skinned 
ones, and the long Japanese ones, but he has this 'eggplant 
phobia' in his mind. So anything I do with it has to be in disguise 
as something else. Too bad, I love it! I even like the little seedy 
ones that are so crunchy and firm.
