GIFT OF THE WEEK : EGGPLANT, CHAYOTE AND LEUNCA.

Such a lovely day...
I got so various vegetables this morning from my coworker.
Two white chayotes, a handful of leunca (Solanum nigrum), and a lot of finger eggplants.
Oh yes... there're a handful of red chilies too, but I forgot to take a picture of them.


These are really nice gift...
The young green leunca is great for eaten raw also stir fried with chili, anchovy, tempe or tofu.
I will save the black ripen leunca for seeds, I want to grow it in my garden. 
I think it's better to grow our own vegetables.


The finger eggplants are so cute and great for eaten raw with 'sambal' (ground chili sauce).
Actually I want the ripen fruits for seed, but all eggplants that I got were still young and immature.
Hope next time I find the ripen fruit.



Anyway... thank you so much friend!
You gave me great gift!

  2. Before I read the text I thought that the chayotes were white peppers.
