Eggplant, Tomatoes, and Sweet Corn
Yummy Fresh Eats… Loving July into August.
We live in PA.
However… We make a run over to Jersey once a week to buy Old Mr. King’s Sweet Treats. I don’t know whether it is the Jersey sandy soil, or that his farm is in the middle of the Wharton State Forest. Maybe it is the Love he puts into his craft. Perhaps all three combined that make his Eggplant (he says it’s male), Tomatoes, Corn and, last but not least, the Zucchini the Sweetest ever. He has been working this farm since he was a kid. He always says: “I’m happy to still be working this side of the grass.” 😀
For us the near 2 hour, 66 mile round trip a week worth it. 🙂
I cannot get enough of his fresh Sweet Jersey Eggplant. I eat it hot, fresh off the griddle, topped with Sweet Red Jersey Tomatoes. Then later that night, I eat it cold right from the Ice Box. (ahem… Fridge)
Finally for the ‘Desert’, Sweet, Sweet Jersey Corn.
The best way to fix eggplant for Our Family is:
- Peel then slice just under 1/2 inch thick.
- Salt, and set aside for near an hour.
- Rinse and blot off excess water.
- Have skillet / griddle medium hot.
- Press slices into flour on both sides.
- then dip into a beaten egg, thinned with a drizzle of water or milk.
- Press into bread crumbs on both sides. (your choice of seasoning)
- Then fry, until golden brown on each side.
