baba ganoush will freeze well, since eggplant has such a high water content probalaby not a lot of other options for freezing. pickled eggplant is also a good way to go
We are up to our wazoo in eggplant from our CSA. Anyone know how to freeze or a good eggplant recipe that can freeze?

So yes, you can save some for later, but I think you have to do all the prep and cooking now to end up with good results.

1. Wash, peel if desired, and slice 1/3-inch thick. Prepare quickly, enough eggplant for one blanching at a time.
2. Water blanch, covered for 4 minutes in one gallon boiling water containing 1/2 cup lemon juice (fresh or bottled).
3. Cool, drain and package, leaving 1/2-inch head space. Seal in zip closure freezer bags and seal and freeze.
4. For frying -- Pack the drained slices with a freezer wrap between slices. Seal and freeze.
