Now I can hardly wait, I have 8 eggplants in my garden this year, 5 I grew
from seed and 3 I bought as plants because I don't usually have much luck
growing from seed.  All are looking pretty good this year and I hope to have
a good crop.  All these recipies look great.  Thanks.

Try the Oriental varieties such as Filipino Lavender or Neelamlong NOT ever 
bitter!  Also there is a difference in the bitterness of male and female 
eggplants.  Look at the bottom to differentiate.
