Hi Dawn,
It was I-- boy it was hard to talk you into taking that eggplant! LOL

Roasted Eggplant Dip (Baba Ghanoush)
for 2 cups:
3 med eggplant (about 3&1/2 - 4 lbs)
5 tsp tahini (can substitute 1 Tbl peanut butter plus 1 tsp roasted sesame oil the dark kind)
2 cloves garlic, chopped
Juice of 1 large lemon (about 1/4 cup)
1/2 tsp salt
1 Tbl. good olive oil

Prick the eggplants a few times and roast in a preheated 400 degree oven 45-60 minutes until flesh is very soft. When cool enough to handle, split open & scrape insides into food processor. Add the rest of the ingredients and puree until smooth. Good with pita bread, pita toasts, veggies, lavosh chips, wheat thins, just about anything.

You can adjust the garlic-- I like lots. I've also just roasted a full head of garlic, as is, brushed with olive oil, along side the eggplant. You have to use twice as much, but it's a smoother flavor. Just squeeze the roasted cloves out of their skins into the food processor. You can find tahini in most supermarkets these days, and you can always find sesame oil in the Chinese section.

RE: Freezing mini eggplants whole? (Follow-Up #1)

Preparation Harvest before seeds become mature and when color is uniformly dark. Wash, peel and slice 1/3-inch thick. Prepare quickly, enough eggplant for one blanching at a time.

Water blanch 4 minutes in 1 gallon of boiling water containing 1/2 cup lemon juice. Cool, drain and package, leaving 1/2-inch headspace. Seal and freeze.

For Frying Pack the drained slices with freezer wrap between slices. Seal and freeze.
