The New Jersey Department of Agriculture has continually worked to bring Jersey Fresh to all who want it, by working with restaurants, schools, colleges, big box stores, local communities, hotels, hospitals an

Melanzane imbottite alla napoletana (Neapolitan Style Stuffed Eggplant)

"In this Neapolitan take on stuffed eggplant, smaller eggplant are split in half, their flesh carved out with a paring knife and sautéed in garlic and olive oil along with a few tomatoes, then mixed with some typically Southern flavors: olives, capers and, if you like, anchovies, along with fresh herbs. That mixture becomes your stuffing. A spell in a hot oven allows the flavors to meld and the top to brown nicely. Et voilà!" ~ Memorie di Angelina

Eggplant might just be my favorite summer vegetable, and we've prepared it every which way on this blog: grilled, sautéed, marinated, breaded and fried

I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to shoot a morning of work at Hunter's Farm, a family-run farm, in Cinnaminson for my friends. So much goes into the behind the scenes of how the fresh produce gets from the farm to everyone's plates to enjoy. I was glad to have a chance to get to see it. #thankyouNJfarmers
