Questions and Answers – How To Freeze Eggplant
How do you store eggplant for future use. Freeze or can in canning jars? – Vickie (8/25/05)
Harvest before seeds become mature and when color is uniformly dark.
Wash, peel if desired, and slice 1/3-inch thick. Prepare quickly, just enough eggplant for one blanching at a time.
Water blanch, covered for 4 minutes in one gallon boiling water containing 1/2 cup lemon juice (fresh or bottled).
Cool, drain and package, leaving 1/2-inch head space. Seal in zip closure freezer bags and seal and freeze.
Pack the drained slices with a freezer wrap between slices. Seal and freeze
