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