Fried Eggpant

How about theses "baby" eggplants?   Pretty cute.  I bought these at the local farmer's market.  They  are the perfect size for frying like zucchini.

I sliced them and soaked them in buttermilk and put them in the refrigerator and left to go play nine holes of golf - so approximately two hours.  

I then floured them and fried them in about two inches of canola oil in a deep frying pan.  I salted them while they were hot like French fries.  

My Mimmie used to fry eggplant.  I would sit at her kitchen table and watch her cook.   She was a wonderful cook!  She used the regular sized eggplant.  Frankly, this is the first time I have ever seen these small ones.

I will say these small ones had a bit of a bitter taste which I wasn't crazy about, but my husband thought they were great.
