Aubergines + SALT

Is it really necessary to salt aubergines before cooking them? I read once that it’s an old wives tail… I stopped salting them but sometimes they’re still super bitter. Anyone know what the solution is? I love brinjal but I hate the salting process!

    As far as I know, the genetically modified aubergines you buy in stores these days, don’t require salting. So maybe it depends where you buy them from? If it’s the local organic farmer, then probably best to salt them.

    Just out of interest… what’s wrong with salting them? (I can’t help you with the answer, sorry, but just wondering why you hate salting them so much!)
