From garden to table – an Egg and Chips update




I have finally dug up my Egg and Chips – a grafted aubergine and potato novelty plant from Thompson and Morgan. Nestled among the roots were around 750g of potatoes (above) - not quite as many as I’d hoped for, but still, for a newbie potato grower, a good crop - while the stem produced a lot of flowers, and four large aubergines. These were not at all bitter, and didn’t need salting. Three disappeared into moussaka, while the largest had pride of place on the table this evening, stuffed and baked according to this BBC recipe. http://www.bbc.co.uk/food/recipes/lamb-stuffed_aubergines_99219

Delicious!
