In Turkey I saw them cooking aubergines on the fire -  they literally just stab them a couple of times with a sharp knife and then put them on glowing coals, turning occasionally until the skin is blackened.

We love cooking on the fire - you've got to try eggs in their shell - really delicious!

thanks for the suggestions

now questions - how long does the aubergine take exactly?

for the eggs, do i need to pierce the shell or something first? won't they explode?

we don't bother to crack the shells, just make sure the eggs are not on direct heat and move them around every few mins.

I guess it depends on the size of the aubergine. You should be able to tell by touch, they go really soft when done.

We have tried the aubergine now, you are right, it is easy to tell if they are done by prodding them!

Sweet potatoes and artichokes are also great on the fire!
