Purple Pride Tasting Guide

Baldor Editors Sep 18 , 2017

Eggplant, or the fanicer term aubergine, is increasing popularity within the “superfoods”. This is not without reason. This striking dark beauty is one of the lowest calorie vegetables there is. It’s also full of fiber and powerful antioxidants. You can tell a good aubergine from a dark, shiny and smooth skin with a fresh green crown. A fresh aubergine should feel firm.

Purple Pride supplies Baldor with a variety of Eggplants directly from The Netherlands. Below are some of the varieties in our warehouse and what they pair best with!

Graffiti - absorbs less oil than the standard eggplant

Perfect when combined with:

Chicken, turkey, pork and veal

Mini Graffiti - Just like the Graffiti, this eggplant is recognised by its beautifully striped skin. Its small size gives it unlimited uses.
