You can use Sicilian eggplant just as you would use your black globe eggplant. Sicilian eggplant is great for eggplant Parmesan and is said to have slightly sweeter taste.
Here is a link to my all time favorite eggplant recipe.
-Grilled Cheese with tomato
-Pico de gallo with our tomato, onion, and jalapeno
-Fried Eggplant with a slice of tomato on top
-Eat a tomato like an apple (Gram is famous for this one)

I really C-A-N-'T believe it is week 10 already. Wow, where has the time gone?
Last week, 4th of July week, is THE busiest week for Jersey fresh produce. Corn, cantaloupes, watermelon, and tomatoes are a favorite this time of year. I hope you enjoyed some fresh produce at your celebrations. To add to the busy week we were hit with a wicked storm, power outage, and oppressive heat wave. We are still finding the effects of the storm, i.e. hail damage in tomatoes and peppers.
Remember those tomatoes, that had such a rough start? Check it out here. Well, this week is their time to shine. This week we have picked nearly 3000 boxes off that field. It has really been incredible.
