    These are both fun and painful to watch. Could you possibly find a more unaware group of people? I would not be surprised if someone is still cutting their meat at dinner. I am surprised you don't have EMS in the frame every time one of these people picks up a knife. A line from Zorro keeps coming to mind, "Do you know how to fight with a sword? ", "Yes, the pointy end goes into the other man." (Good reminder.) Oh yeah and the guy who thinks "moulinyan" (yes, spelled correctly) means "melanzana" - to this imbecile I shouldn't be astonished that racial slurs are so integrated into your vocabulary, you actually think its a word for a common vegetable... do people like this still exist? Regrettably, yes.

    I don't understand!!! What's so hard in cutting a fkng eggplant? None of them used a ceramic knife, it stops the process of oxidation. You're welcome.

    I’m actually a home chef and a pastry chef and seeing them cut the eggplant worries me cause I’m worried they’ll cut themselves.😅

    You’re not supposed to removed the skin of the eggplant because that will trigger the enzyme to oxidized and that will give you that browning color in the skin of the eggplant. If you want to roast the eggplant just leave the skin because that will protect the meat of the eggplant then after you roast it, it’s your choice if you want to remove that or not a. Remove the skin if you’re planning to make an omelette. b. Don’t peel the skin if you’re planning to put it in your salad. Because that will give your salad a vibrant color. Cuts are also depending on what are going to cook with it so you don’t actually want a dice or cube of eggplant if you are making a salad instead make a strip from a roast salad that will give you that smoke and savory flavor of the eggplants. Your welcome. 😉

    if you look at the bottom end of an eggplant, you can easily tell if it is a male or a female plant. The difference is the number of seeds and the bitterness. The way to remember is "dots, not slots" to get the better tasting veggie. - i should be awarded a few extra likes for this bit of life changing aubergine trivia.

    Obviously you all think the viewers are idiots and easy amused. Not. To find so many useless people to demonstrate how incompetent they are was likely easy ... perhaps you are surrounded by them. Is acting brain dead an award winning performance ? Or are you making fun of challenged people which would be discrimination. what is your message to us the audience.

    When possible, don’t skin your eggplants, because the purple skin contains high amounts of anthocyanins, which are a kind of antioxidant that is really good for you! It’s in the purple skin, but not in the pale center of the eggplant, so keep that skin on when possible. :) It’s also in other purple fruits and veg, especially blueberries and blackberries.
