Flashback Friday

Flashback Friday

 

 

While I was checking my Time Hop of things that happened in the past, it had a blog I posted a year ago. I thought the blog would be worth posting about again since many people have vegetable gardens. The post I wrote last year on this day was how I freeze eggplant from my garden and I thought it was perfect for my Flashback Friday blog for the Ultimate Blog Challenge.

 

We don’t have a large yard so our garden is only an 8 foot square raised bed garden but with planning, I can get a lot of vegetables.   I usually stick with summer squash, peppers, eggplant, cucumbers and this year I added yellow beans.

My favorites are the squash and eggplant because I can freeze them and have enough to last me into the winter.  Nothing like having fresh vegetables on your dinner table when the growing season is done.

 

It’s easy to freeze eggplant, I start by dipping it in egg then flour and fry in oil.  After they are cooked, I drain on paper towels and put on baking sheets to freeze individually. Then they go into zip lock bags and ready to make eggplant Parmesan.  By having them already fried and ready to prepare, all I have to do after work is add sauce and cheese to the eggplant and bake!

So if you like eggplant,  here is my Eggplant from Garden to Freezer blog that shows my easy how-to directions.  http://themarthareview.com/eggplant-from-garden-to-freezer/

Do you have a garden and if so, what have you planted?  If you don’t have a garden, you can purchase vegetables reasonable at Farmer’s Markets and fill your freezer!

    I think I remember reading this post the first time, and thinking “gee, it would be great to have eggplant to freeze”. I would love to, but it does not grow well here many years – we finally deleted it from our garden. (Too bad, because the plants are lovely).

  2. Martha says:

    Aww, that’s too bad it won’t grow in your area Alana. As for the plants, our eggplant crop is finished but the plants are still growing strong.

  3. I was trying to figure out how you could freeze eggplant per se. But, this is a cool idea. Spend an hour preparing a slew of eggplant and then just a few minutes (months later) to enjoy eggplant parmagiana

    I love Eggplant Roy but not the prep time. This way I only mess up the kitchen for a day but have meals to last many. It literally takes minutes to prepare after work. Thanks for visiting.

    Cool. That’s something I hadn’t thought about before. Thanks for sharing.

  6. Martha says:

    It’s a great time saver when it’s already fried. I just take as much needed out of the bag and it’s ready to prepare with sauce and cheese. Thanks for stopping by Janyce.
