You Can Can Eggplant
*note: I neglected to tell you the rest of the recommended processing, which is: wash and cut eggplant in cubes or slices, sprinkle with salt, cover with cold water & let soak for 45 mins. Drain, then boil in fresh water for 5 mins. Drain and pack hot without added salt. Fill jars & add boiling water, leaving 1" headspace.
Another friend builds high-end stores. He's working on a Gucci at the moment. Yesterday, he sent a link to a handbag that cost over $25,000. Excuse me? Not to mention I can't comprehend why anyone would spend that, I just keep thinking about how many mouths that could feed, you know? Mind you, I'm not condemning Gucci. They wouldn't sell them if we didn't buy them. I just think that's a rather sad statement. But then, I also think it's all good, and we've got to get through this piece to get where we're all going. I've been joining in on Unplugged Sundays this summer, which helps me slow down just a bit. Enjoy your weekend, friends!
