"This is my second order for your oregano and I would like to say that it is the "BEST" I have ever used. It is better, much better, than my own home grown oregano. I want to thank you people for a superior product that I absolutely love and so do the friends I share it with...God Bless"   Charles W.,  Plainville, Connecticut
Angela's Italian and Sicilian Recipes
Eggplant Caponata
Eggplant Caponata

3 medium eggplants
4 large ripe tomatoes
2 medium-sized onions 
2 celery stalks
12 Sicilian green olives
1/2 cup capers
1/4 cup red wine vinegar
2 tablespoons sugar
Extra virgin olive oil 
Peel the eggplants and cut off the stems.
Slice the eggplant into cubes or rectangular pieces about an inch thick, place the pieces in salted water for thirty minutes, then strain and pat dry. 

Put the tomatoes in a pot of boiling water and remove after a minute.
Let the tomatoes cool, peel off the skin and slice them in half, then squeeze out the seeds and coarsely chop.

Slice the celery stalks into 1/2-inch pieces and put them in the boiling water for 5 minutes, then strain and set aside.
Press the olives with the flat side of a knife or the palm of your hand to crack them and remove the pits.
Rinse the capers and chop the onion.

Dissolve the sugar in the red wine vinegar in a small bowl.

Heat 1/4 cup of olive oil in a large pan over moderately high heat and fry the eggplant until lightly golden.
Transfer the eggplant onto a plate and layer with paper towels to absorb the oil. 

Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil over moderate heat and fry the onion for several minutes, then add the tomatoes, celery, olives and capers.
Lower the heat and simmer until excess liquid has evaporated.
Add the fried eggplant then stir the sweetened red wine vinegar.
Remove from the burner, place the caponata in a bowl and let cool to room temperature, then serve.
