So with that taken care of I just had one more thing to make for my new friend Sara @ Saucy Dipper. You see Sara was hosting DipStock, and having lived through the era that a similarly named festival was held, I thought it my duty to participate! I thought long and hard, and walked through my Local Wegman’s for inspiration. I love Hummus all kinds, there was Baba Ganoush, White Bean dip, Cheese Dip………well you get the picture. So many choices…….hmmm. Then while looking at produce, I saw the Graffiti Eggplant and it came to me, Caponata.
Now there are a few different varieties of Caponata, from different regions of Italy. My version of Caponata is kind of a hybrid, adding a few things that I like in addition to the traditional ingredients. For those of you who may be unfamiliar with Caponata, think of it a relish of sorts, or an Sicilian Salsa. My version like its Sicilian counterpart contains eggplant. I hope you enjoy!
