Cooking Basics

Eggplants - removing lye

The high lye content of eggplants results in cut surfaces quickly turning brown. If cooked in this state the dish will become bitter and darkened in color. Place eggplants in water for about 10 minutes immediately after cutting to remove lye. If used right away after cutting it is not necessary to place the cut eggplant into water. It is easier to skip this step for deep-fried and stir-fried dishes, so be sure to use right away after cutting.
