How to Purchase Eggplant
Eggplants with fewer seeds have the best flavor since they tend to be less bitter tasting. When purchasing, chose small- or medium-sized eggplants since large overmature eggplants are more likely to contain more seeds. Avoid eggplants that are too soft.
How to Chop Fresh Leafy Herbs
To easily chop fresh leafy herbs, such as cilantro, parsley, basil, mint and sage, pick the leaves from the stems and place on a cutting board. Using a chef's knife and holding the tip end down, cut back and forth across the herbs. Be sure that your knife is sharp - a dull knife will bruise the leaves. Use the herbs as soon as possible after chopping.
