Tip: How to Store Eggplants

Wednesday, April 15, 2009

Handle them carefully; they bruise easily. Large, deep-purple ones will keep in the refrigerator for about four days. Asian varieties that are long and thin must be refrigerated, too (up to five days); they are particularly sensitive to cold and should be kept in an area of the fridge that is slightly warmer. Check for signs of shriveling as they age.
