Hello, this is Coreen from Shakes Bakes, and right now, we're going to jarring eggplants in oil. So, let's talk about some canning ingredients that you're going to need to get started. Chilis are good; you should have some black pepper on hand. Fill up a, a jar about half full of olive oil, about a tablespoon of chives, about a tablespoon of dill seeds and about half a tablespoon of celery seeds. In addition to that, you're going to need a cup of vinegar, three cloves of garlic and some more olive oil to top it off when we put the actual eggplant in the jar. You take your eggplant; if it's not already peeled, you peel it and if it's not already sliced out or cut in portions like you would like, you go ahead and that at this point which is what I'm going to do right now. So, at this point, our eggplants were nicely sliced up like you saw earlier, but I actually had them sit here draining for about an hour. Put a little bit of salt on paper towel, something basic like that. You can use brown paper bags or whatever it is you feel necessary to drain, even a wire rack works. So, I'm going to go ahead, I'm going to take my eggplants and I'm going to put them in jar that's half full with the olive oil. After I get my last eggplant in the jar, I'm going to go ahead and measure out a cup of, of vinegar and I'm going to put the remaining ingredients inside the jar. Put my celery seeds, my chives, my dill seeds; now I'm putting in my chilis. So exciting. You know, if you wanted something a little bit more exotic, you can actually even add ginger in there. Right now this is my garlic and then, I'm going to top it off with whatever I have left liquid wise. Put my lid on. I'm going to shake it up. Ain't that pretty? Wow. So, this is how you can eggplant.
