Cooking Baked Eggplant for the Winter:
Step 1: bake eggplant.
Rinse and dry the eggplants, but do not remove the tail yet, we will bake with it.
If you cook on a gas stove, then you need a fire divider (you can buy it in the same department as other kitchen utensils - dishes, for example, cutlery). And those who cook eggplant on the grill or bonfire need a grill.
Puncture the eggplant with a fork in some places, then lay them on a fire and cook, turning over, until the skin on the sides is charred.
If all vegetables are not included at once, cook in batches.
Step 2: peel the eggplant.
When the baked eggplants have cooled, peel them from the skin with your hands; if the pulp does not want to peel, cut it off with a knife.
Peeled vegetables should be left in a colander or plate to drain a little, and then chopped very finely. You end up with something like eggplant caviar.
Step 3: we prepare the baked eggplants for the winter.
Spread the resulting caviar in clean glass jars and sterilize them in boiling water for 40-60 minutes depending on the volume of the container. Then roll it up and wrapping it in a blanket or plaid, leave it at room temperature for about a day, until it cools completely. As it cools down, put it in the basement or closet. Baked eggplants are good and long.
Step 4: serve the baked eggplant.
You can serve baked eggplant as an appetizer, but do not forget to add spices or sauce to them before serving. Other vegetables can be added to them, such as fried onions and / or baked potatoes. Very tasty and fragrant, as if you just removed the eggplant from the heat and cleaned it. Try this method, and you will never want to harvest eggplants for the winter in a different way.
Enjoy your meal!
- Also, baked eggplant can be packaged in bags and frozen. Frozen, they retain their taste no worse.
