I used to LOVE eggplants until today. While chopping up the veg for lunch, i picked up a piece that had blotchy brownpatches for further inspection. LO AND BEHOLD, i found MAGGOTS CRAWLING IN THE EGGPLANT!!! not just one, but several. then i picked up the other eggplant half, the 'normal' looking one, and managed to catch a tiny WHITE maggot worming its way back into the WHITE flesh.
AHHHH!!! they are so difficult to spot, i bet people have actually cooked maggot infested eggplants without knowing it. I SWEAR I WILL NEVER EVER EAT EGGPLANTS AGAIN.
now i just feel gross.
any yicky stories to share?
