Some veggies cry to be peeled. Eggplant is one of them. Skins can be very difficult for some folks to digest.

I have only made this with little eggplants from the garden. The skins don't seem to present a problem.

+1. In all the truth I peel almost everything. Cucumbers, apples, tomatoes when I have time, zucchini, eggplants, for sure potatoes. I hate skin pretty much of every vegetable and fruit.

Sometimes I will buy those little cukes for pickling. I think they have a lot of flavor and there is no wax on the skins. My serrated veggie peeler allows me to peel tomatoes without having to go through the process of the hot water/cold water process. The wax thing on the skins kind of turns my stomach. I know it is the same wax that is used in canning. Only in smaller amounts. But I don't eat paraffin wax as part of my daily diet. It is used to make the cukes and other veggies look more attractive.

Sometimes I feel guilty removing the skins. You lose so many nutrients when you peel. But I simply cannot digest them.
