- 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
- 6 slices fresh ginger (about the size and thickness of a quarter each)
- 4 green onions, sliced (white and green parts divided)
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- Cut the stem off the eggplant and dice the eggplant into small cubes; sprinkle the cubes with salt and set in a colander to drain for about 15 minutes, then squeeze most of the liquid out.

- Heat a wok over medium high heat and and add 1 tablespoon of dry sherry; stir fry the pepper flakes, ginger, and white part of the green onions until fragrant.
- Add the eggplant, reduce heat, and saute about 8 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until the eggplant is cooked through.
- Add in the soy sauce mixture and turn the heat to high, cooking until most of the liquid is evaporated, about 5 minutes; be sure to stir so that the eggplant is thoroughly coated with the sauce.

I've been tracing my roots for at least 10 years. One branch came to America just after the Mayflower in the early 1600s. Others came in the early 1700s, late 1890s. So, my American roots run pretty deep and I am deeply patriotic. Just wish someone had thought to same me some land!</p>
