Nice recipe, but I know that eggplants separated bitter water that is discarded and this is not so, where is the trick?

it in my small eggplants May not necessarily ...

Kurtni - when aubergines are small in quickly softened. Also if you do soup in a saucepan small eggplants better intervene and there is no empty space at the bottom. So gather 6-7 eggplant and use cord if large I can put only 2.

akva7 - not necessarily bitter water to separate. As far as I am aware it is not harmful ... and so act :) I love a hot, more sizzling dishes can, therefore, appeals to me.

Look what I found information - aubergines contain the substance solanine, which explains the slightly bitter flavor. In overripe solanine is in a greater amount, and may be toxic. When you buy *purple Doctor*, choose young *bombs*. Brownish handle indicates that the fruit is cut off long ago. On the surface of the fresh eggplant no brown spots, it is hard, but the sheet is smooth and shiny. If you are not sure that the eggplant is fresh, just in case it Hold 3 percent brine - thus extract a substantial part of solanine. If you do not like its distinctive bitterness, heed the white eggplants. They will solanine, so this variety has the gentle taste.

I also never strain off aubergines, I like this particular savor. She and the beer is bitter, but many people like it;-) A recipe I really like, bravo!
