Kamo Aubergine

May 29, 2013

A kamo aubergine is a very round variety of eggplant.  This solanaceae vegetable is deeply purple and grows from a thick meaty stem.

Like other varieties of eggplant, kamo aubergines have a bitter taste until cooked.  Cooking quickly tenderizes the vegetable and releases a complex of flavors.  Their porosity also allows easy absorption of flavored fluids making eggplants a useful addition to vegetarian dishes in particular.

The kamo aubergine is of the kyo yasai or Kyoto vegetables.
