Pretty, but tiny.

You should see the purple ones for the weekend.

Show me! Show me! Please, Lucy...? i am sure the purple ones would be so pretty too.

And YES, OF COURSE we should meet up next time you are here. I can't promise you that I'm not a freak.. hee hee..

Have a fab weekend,
Nora
p/s: I bought wholemeal flour last night, guess what I am baking tonight when I need a break? oh-yeeah!

Wendy said...

I was looking forward to this picture! Thank you! How do you use them?

Sophie said...

So cute!

The first time I had these was when we had a room service thai curry at a hotel in Sydney. We had no idea what they were! I blame the jetlag...

Lucy, Those the most beautiful eggplants I have ever seen. (I reserve the right to use the same statement after seeing the purple ones).

Lucy said...

I will, Nora, though you'll have to wait...am making a many-eggplanted curry to post about next week. Consider it a date!

Wendy, they will be used in a curry tonight for a post that you will feature in next week - aren't they cute?

They are an oddity, Sophie, so I'm hardly surprised that you couldn't quite work out what they were - jet-lag...urgh..

They'll be outed next week, Suganya!

This is an amazing picture, Lucy: it baffles me and intrigues me. I guess I'll have to patiently wait for the next piece.

I gather these the ones wendy teased us with? I am looking forward to seeing how you cook with them - they have that cute look of doll's house food!

Wendy said...

Now I'm intrigued! :)

I so love the variety of eggplants. One of my fav veges. I was thinking today about how many cuisines use eggplants - Italian, Greek, Turkey, Lebanon, Indian, Thai, Japanese, Chinese, and probably many more.

How wonderful I have never seen or heard of anything like this! Are they good to eat?

Susan said...

I want to pluck them off their branches like grapes. Bet they pickle up very nicely. Too, too cute, Lucy. If you tell me you've harvested from your own backyard, I shall cry with envy.

These look cool! I have never seen them before. Look forward to see how you cook them! And purple, WOW!
Your photo is famtastic! They look like something out of astrology class or how about molecules!
