Add some of the eggplants to a pan or pot with some oil. Fry (covered) on a low temperature until one side is cooked. Remove cover and fry the other side. Depending on the size of pan or pan you use you will need to repeat this process 10-12 times to fry all 10 kilos of eggplant and use all of the 1.3 liters of oil.

Storing: Prepare the jars and covers by washing them in very hot water and leaving until they are completely dry. Fill each jar and use a gloved hand to press down the peppers. Top up each jar with the liquid remaining in the pot. The liquid should completely cover the peppers. Each jar needs to be filled to the brim to create a vacuum. Store in a refrigerator.
