In this tutorial, we learn how to prepare eggplant. First, cut the top and the bottom off of your eggplant. After this, grab your eggplant and hold it so it's standing up. Then, grab a sharp knife and cut down from the top to the bottom so the skin comes off of the vegetable. Go all the way around until you remove all of the skin from the eggplant. You can also use a peeler to do this to speed up the process. When all the skin is off, use your knife to cut the eggplant into slices and then cut further to make it smaller.
