Or golf balls? Hee hee.

Got these from the farmers market.


Golf ball sized.

Vendor said best stewed or braised. Okay.


Leftover roast pork, the brown gravy variety, not the Chinese crispy skin variety.

Stir-fried the eggplant, added a little water, a little whiskey, let everything braise for 15-20 minutes.

Added the roast pork and package of brown mushroom gravy, braise for another 5 minutes.

The eggplant kinda lost its structure, dish became more thick gravy. The Cat liked.
