Can eggplant be frozen?

 

Q. Can caponata be frozen? I always have so much and would love to be able to save it.

 

A. According the University of Illinois Extension
To freeze eggplants:

  1. Wash, peel if desired, and slice 1/3-inch thick. Prepare quickly, enough eggplant for one blanching at a time.
  2. Water blanch, covered for 4 minutes in one gallon boiling water containing 1/2 cup lemon juice (fresh or bottled).
  3. Cool, drain and package, leaving 1/2-inch head space. Seal in zip closure freezer bags and seal and freeze.
