This year I planted four classic Black Magic plants as compared to last year when I planted Fingerling Eggplant. The Fingerling had good flavor but the fruit was very narrow and elongated, making it difficult to do much with it, except saute or grill. I think I'll be happier with the Black Magic.
One of my favorite things to do with eggplant is make Eggplant Rolatini, which is basically
- Thinly sliced eggplant,
- Filled and rolled with a savory mixture of softened goat cheese and fresh herbs,
- Simmered in a light tomato sauce...delicious!
