Did you know that there are white eggplant? A few summers ago, I got some from the local farmer’s market and used them to make my eggplant Parmesan recipe. OMG it was the best eggplant Parmesan I had ever eaten! I hadn’t grown eggplant in years, but after trying them, I just had to start growing my own white eggplant to use in this eggplant Parmesan recipe.
Bread and butter pickles are one of my family’s favorites. Each summer, I make as many jars as possible while the cucumbers are in full production out in the garden. These sweet bread and butter pickles are easy enough for a beginner to make, using the boiling water bath canning method.
When the cucumber plants are producing like crazy, use them to make your own hot dog relish. I use hot dog relish all year long to make Thousand Island dressing, tartar sauce, remoulade, and to add some zest to pasta salad.
