Eggs graded AA Large are best for cooking and baking. Always store raw eggs in their containers in the refrigerator, away from strong-smelling foods. The eggs' porous shells absorb odors easily and can taste less than fresh when used.
|Eggplant (Aubergine)||Native to Asia, eggplants come in variety of shapes, sizes and colors. Tiny pea eggplants are small fat green balls which grow in clusters and can be bitter in flavor. They are used whole in Thai curries or raw in salads.|
|Eggplant (Slender)||Also called baby or Japanese eggplants. They are used in Indian curries and vegetarian cooking, where they readily absorb the flavors. The common eggplant used in Western cooking can be substituted.|
