Cucumber and Eggplant
Crisp and juicy, cucumbers thrive in the warmth of summer. Delightful in a salad or saved for winter as pickles, cucumbers are a very popular vegetable. With some varieties developed for slicing and others for pickling, there's a cucumber for everyone.
Heirloom eggplants are very different from conventionally grown hybrid eggplants. Heirlooms aren’t bitter at all. They are almost sweet, rich, filling and delicious. Our family loves them grilled, simply basted with olive oil, dusted with salt and grilled until brown and soft. But they are also amazing roasted and then mashed with a delicious curry and served over rice. And there’s always eggplant parmesan or using them in a delicious vegetable lasagna.
