Ghana Taste Garden Egg 800g complex flavor

Ghana Taste Garden Egg 800g complex flavor

The raw fruit becomes tender when cooked and develops a rich, complex flavor. Many recipes advise salting, rinsing and draining of the sliced fruit (known as "degorging"), to soften it and to reduce the amount of fat absorbed during cooking, but mainly to remove the bitterness of the earlier cultivars. Feel free to order this and other African food as well as Caribbean and Latino online right here.

Name variations: eggplants, nyaadewa
