Sicilian Caponata is a typical Sicilian side dish, with eggplants, tomatoes, celery, onion, olives, capers, in a sweet and sour sauce.
I had never made Sicilian Caponata, actually I had not even tasted it, yet. But I did had heard about it. A lot. I was just a little afraid I wouldn’t like it… But I did was curious about it… And yesterday afternoon, while I was browsing a magazine, here it was: Sicilian Caponata! Again! So I made a short research, and the recipe on the magazine seemed to be trustworthy. I had a brainstorming with the Sicilian girls from the Facebook group, and I developped a recipe where I tried to balance all the flavors. I must say it: I liked Sicilian Caponata a lot! And I wil totally make it again, now that I have this great recipe 😉
There is plenty of versions, for example with bell peppers too, but I tried not to take chances, and to follow Anna’s advice (she is one of the cook from the goup) and her grandmother’s recipe, so I resisted temptation and didn’t add basil in the end…
For a first time, and given the ratings around the table, I think I deserve a nice 10, what do you think, Sicilian friend?
