Hi,

 

I have brinjal that is now a dirty yellow in color (the usual color is greenish purple). Is it ripe enough? Normally I would have plucked it about a month ago if I were to use it as a vegetable for cooking. Have I waited long enough? I wish I had taken a picture (I will do so and update this post). It is very hard to touch.

Assuming that it is ripe enough are these the correct next steps?

  1. Cut open the brinjal and mash it with a masher.
  2. Add water and let the seeds sink to the bottom.
  3. Remove the pulp and separate the seeds from the pulp.
  4. Wash the seeds in fresh water couple of times.
  5. Pat dry with paper towels.
  6. Apply Bavastin
  7. Let it to air dry for couple of days.
  8. Seal it in a zip bag and store in cool dry place (or in a refrigerator).

Thanks,

Srikanth

Here's the link to the photo of the Brinjal. The first two are two views of the same brinjal. The third one is the regular brinjal ready for cooking.
