Yes, it appears that after doing a little research (read: wikipedia) it turns out this veggie is in fact categorized as a fruit. Why? Well, as my dear wikipedia mentions, it's because of the seeds being housed within the flesh.
Another day I'll look into why this fruit is in fact considered a vegetable (the story of the tomato is fascinating and I'll write about it later), but until that day, here is a collection of recipes that feature this tender nightshade.
Every Sunday evening, I send out a newsletter with the following week's dinner menu, and the seasonal produce featured. The newsletter is free, and I won't share or sell your email address.
If it turns out it's not the content you're looking for, you can easily unsubscribe with a link at the bottom of the email. This project was originally a way to wrap my head around the evolving seasonal produce in the supermarkets.
I'm so excited to share the journey and learn from you as I go along!
