|Packaged dried eggplant skins|
I was pretty confident I'd be able to find the skins even though some ME stores don't carry them. The fact that dried eggplant skins are available this time of year made my search a little easier. After spotting a huge display at Nouri's, I bought two bags - one for me; one for my daughter.

|Their sizes varied and the skin in the center has a large hole in it.|
By the way, if you're in the market for dried eggplant skins, but can’t find them in your area, my friends at Macar and Sons have it in stock right now. You can email them at: email@example.com, and tell them The Armenian Kitchen sent you! Order several packs because the dried skins will last a very long time in your pantry.
