A Flatulating Tale of Research


A Flatulating Tale of Research

Why when I go looking for information
about eggplants, specifically speaking,
Fairytale Eggplants
found very little data
having nothing to do with cooking!!

I now know how to
Grill, Wok, Sauté, Roast, Bake, Deep Fry
the bulbous purplish vegetable
that is really a berry

Waaaaaay more info than I
wanted, bargained for

I did, however, come across a folktale
relating to breaking wind
something about a Golden Eggplant
and while trying to find
the English Translation
came across more recipes
on how to eat eggplants

Relatives from the Nightshade
Family Tree tell me
to take care if I want to cook for
myself this nutrient-dense food
aside from gas
i could be in for a world of hurt

Mmmm, thinking about
Pan-fried eggplant now………
Might leave the prep to a professional chef
