DR, that stuffed eggplant sounds delicious! I think I'm going to try that.
I called my aunt for her caponata recipe. She couldn't give me any measurements, but says she browns onion and celery. She then browns the chunks of eggplant and mixes it with the onions and celery. Then she adds tomato sauce, capers, olives, garlic, a little sugar, and apple cider vinegar. (I think that was it, should have written it down ).
