Assyrian Pickled Eggplant
Recently, while visiting my sister in Chicago, we discussed some of mom’s old recipes. I mentioned that I recalled mom making pickled eggplant when I was younger, but didn’t recall her making them in my adult years. This was one of those times when having an older sister comes in handy. Beni was able to recall the procedure that my mom used when picking the eggplant. Taking advantage of her memories and my knowledge of pickling, I pieced together this recipe. I believe it’s pretty close to mom’s recipe, except maybe a little spicier. Give it a try and see what you think!
