How much would a small eggplant weigh ?
Hi - I made Ellie Top's Eggplant Caponata over the weekend and only got out half of what the recipe said I should. Problem is that the recipe states only "1 small eggplant", "2 large tomatoes"; "1 medium red pepper" - not exact quantities... In the Ball book purchase guide they say 3 medium tomatoes will yield 500g - could I then assume 2 large tomatoes would yield 500g or should I make it 400g? They say 1 large sweet bell pepper yields 175-250g so can I use 150g for a medium pepper ? The Ball book doesn't mention eggplant at all. Another of the Ellie Topp recipes says that 2 large eggplants yields 1Kg so can I presume that a small eggplant will weigh about 350g ?
As if I'm not confused enough :-)
