Fairy Tale eggplants are a mini, sweet and tender lavender skinned eggplant and are usually no more than 4” in length. If you cannot find these at your local store or Farmer’s Market - slice Japanese eggplant into 1” - 1-1/2” rounds. Flavor is most important here - seek out varieties that are sweet versus those that tend to have a more bitter flavor profile.
