DIRECTIONS

Place eggplant slices in a large zip top bag or shallow baking dish. Pour in cooled brine, making sure eggplant pieces are submerged in liquid. Seal bag or cover dish and refrigerate for 30 min. to 1 hour. Discard brining liquid and pat eggplant slices dry before grilling, searing, or roasting.
