Do you have any favorite recipes that remind you of a particular person in your life? Eggplant Parmesan always reminds me of my sweet grandmother who loved it and loved to make it for the family. It was comfort food all the way for me whenever I ate it!
Gram always taught me to slice and salt the eggplant slices on paper towels to take that bitterness out which is often associated with eggplant. She’d lay them on towels, salt them, and lay the rest of them on top of one another and then wait about a half an hour. It ALWAYS made the most tender eggplant parmesan you ever had!
