Sicilian Eggplant

Out of stock

Italian eggplants have a snow-white flesh and are sweeter and more tender than their oblong relatives. Integral to Sicilian cooking since their introduction by Arab populations, they are best served in styles reminiscent of that island. For something fresh and summery, try a caponata with tomatoes and olives. For something more substantial, salt and drain thin slices of eggplant, then fry until golden. Layer with mozzarella and tomato sauce for a fantastic parmigiana. If you want to carbo-load, try a pasta alla Norma. Sauté the eggplant with tomatoes, toss over a tubular pasta and top with ricotta salata.


Ironbound Farm, Asbury NJ

Ironbound Farm is dedicated to growing healthy food, which is produced using resilient ecological stewardship. They are a transitional organic farm--meaning they are converting conventional farmland into organic--and never use synthetic fertilizers, pesticides, or herbicides. Ironbound practices regenerative farming in order to restore and transition the land. Specifically, they use farm-made compost and compost teas, minimize soil disturbance through tillage, and integrate livestock into their farm to provide fertility and pest management. They also practice cover cropping and agroforestry while focusing on perennial crops, reintroducing native plants, and planting wildflower meadows to attract and support beneficial insects (like bees!). 

Wrap in a paper towel and place in a reusable container or perforated plastic bag in the crisper drawer for up to 7 days.
