      The Imam fainted because the entire dowry of olive oil was consumed in a week’s worth of eggplant dishes, which the Imam deeply loved his new bride to cook.

    baba ghanoush and eggplant parmigiana for the save

    agreed that it requires skill and a good recipe to make eggplant fruit delicious,
    but those two dishes manage.

    even okra can be delicious if properly sliced, battered, and fried mixed 50/50 with fresh jalapenos treated the same way.

    Stan, sunchokes are called Jerusalem artichokes in the UK, although they are nothing to do with artichokes or Jerusalem (thought to be a corruption of “girasole” since they belong to the sunflower family). However, their effect on the digestive systems of some or even most people prompted John Goodyer in 1621 to say of them:

    “which way so ever they be dressed and eaten, they stir and cause a filthy loathsome stinking wind, thereby causing the belly to be pained and tormented.”

    I can testify to the fact it doesn’t happen to everybody, though, because my late husband didn’t suffer this effect. I do, however, so I haven’t eaten them for years despite liking them very much. I seem to remember they were particularly good with shrimp, dressed with vinaigrette and served warm or room temperature…..
