Baby Eggplant


Was roaming around the produce section at Sprouts the other day and saw these random purple, oblong-ish things that I didn’t recognize at first.  Stopped and then determined what they were.  Whoa — baby eggplant.  So neat.  They were 1.5″-2″ long and just too good to pass up.  And, they were a whopping 5 for $1.
