Volcanic Produce: White Aubergines
We don't normally shop when we travel, but the local markets in Santorini that are perched on top of the caldera really got our attention. Grocery shopping is definitely that much more exciting when you have the Aegean Sea as the backdrop. These markets sell local produce that can only be grown in the volcanic soil of Santorini. It's called the "white aubergine," or the white eggplant. Unlike other eggplants, the white eggplants don't have seeds, and have sweeter taste. They are typically served in local dish called melitzanosalata, which means "eggplant dip."
