How can eggplant be preserved? I would like to preserve it for a month or more, if possible.

Your comment on the answer suggests you're looking for a means of preservation that doesn't involve pickling or extensive preparation. Can you clarify your question? It may simply not be possible to keep a whole eggplant for a month unless you keep it on the plant. –  logophobe Jun 13 at 14:45

There's a Sicilian preservation of eggplant called Melanzane Sott’Olio. It's similar to giardiniera, but after pickling, you pack it in oil.

Because of the botulism risk of putting garlic in oil, it's considered risky for long-term storage (more than a week, and that's refrigerated), even though it was used in Sicily for generations. You might be able to replace the garlic with something safer, or omit it entirely.
