No.5: Eggplant

Posted Aug 26 2008 1:08pm
The popular eggplant is also known as aubergine, garden egg, or brinjal!



Eggplant Fun Facts:

1) Eggplants are either white, green, yellowish, purple, or purple-black.



2) Europeans used to believe eggplants caused insanity, and called it the Mad Apple.



3) The raw fruit may have a bitter taste, but develops a rich, complex flavor when cooked.



4) Use a stainless-steel knife to cut it, since carbon-steel utensils can cause discolouration and a bitter aftertaste.



5) Eggplant is richer in nicotine than any other edible plant, with 100ng/g (or 0.01mg/100g). The amount of nicotine from eggplant is negligible compared to passive smoking.
