Ball (Canning) Blue Book

Harvest before seeds become mature and when color is uniformly dark.

Wash, peel and slice 1/3 inch. Prepare quickly; just enough eggplant for 1 scalding at a time. Scald 4 minutes in 1 gallon boiling water containing 4-1/2 teaspoons citric acid or 1/2 cup lemon juice.

Cool, drain and pack in can or freeze jars or plastic freezer boxes.

For frying: Pack the drained slices with freezer wrap between slices. Seal, label and freeze.
