Eggplant Caponatina is a Sicilian treat, sort of a relish that melds the flavors of many traditional ingredients. When you look at the recipe the ingredients probably wouldn’t make your list of go togethers. I can tell you however, the flavor is amazing and even those who ‘fear’ the eggplant will love this and probably ask you where it is.
As a kid, whenever this delicacy made it to the counter, we KNEW there was a party afoot. It makes a warm, rustic appetizer, perfect with beef or almost anything. I always asked for this on my birthday, and as you can guess with a winter birthday, there are no eggplants fresh. But mama would make this stuff in the spring, jar it into ball mason jars and BAM, we had it all year round. These days, its easier to find fresh produce year round of course. But, if you’re loving this recipe, you might want to plant some eggplant in your garden this year just so you can truly enjoy it year round.Print
This recipe had been in our family for years, embellished on and loved by many.
