Since I just found out you shouldn't refrigerate tomatoes, now I'm wondering about eggplant. Anyone know?
thanks.

I don't refrigerate tomatoes because it chills out their flavour - they need to be warmish for the flavour to come through. Eggplants don't have that much flavour to start with, and you ( Or I, anyway!) usually cook them, thus warming them. So, yes, I refrigerate eggplants!

Ooh eggplant is my favorite food so I had to jump on this question. I have done lots of research on this beautiful delicious nutritious purple plant (can you tell I love it so? :LOL) and from everything I've read and from what I practice, I do refridgerate mine.

I also learned about a year ago to not refridgerate tomatoes and people give me funny looks when they see them on the counter, but they taste much better at room temperature and they seem to last really well too

Thanks!! I stuck them in the fridge after reading these. I think you are right because they did start to get a little wilty sitting out.

I had 3 colors, purple, white, and green. I cut them in thick slices, dressed with olive oil and sea salt, and broiled for a few minutes on each side. I served them topped with sauteed red kale (sauteed in a little olive oil and plenty of garlic), black pepper, and chunks of goat cheese. Oh my goodness....sooooo yummy.
