Big secret for eggplant cookery : Slice, sprinkle with a moderate dose of salt, drain for an hour or two. Rinse thoroughly, then cook. This will not only purge the tannins and other bitter compounds from the eggplant but will also get rid of a lot of the locked-in moisture that would otherwise make things soggy and prevent flavors from penetrating.
 err, cooking.
