Frequently asked questions about aubergine caponata

How does it match aubergine caponata?

Eggplant Caponata can be considered as a finished dish or as an accompaniment. For example, it can be a single starter course, to be enjoyed with croutons, placed on a platter of cheeses and cured meats or served on bruschetta as an alternative to tomato. But it is also ideal as an accompaniment to second courses. Its typical sweet and sour flavour, in fact, lends itself very well to accompanying white meats or robust fish.

What is the original recipe for aubergine caponata?

Our recipe for aubergine caponata strictly follows tradition but the processing and cooking methods have been innovated to allow greater respect for the raw material and its organoleptic qualities. This recipe, typical of the eastern part of Sicily (each area has its own variations) involves frying the aubergines, strictly in extra virgin olive oil, and the addition, as a condiment, of tomato sauce, carrots, green olives, capers , celery, onion, cane sugar, vinegar, Frantoi Cutrera extra virgin olive oil, salt, basil and oregano.

What is the difference between aubergine caponata and peperonata?

The difference between these two typical Sicilian recipes, very similar to each other, is simple: the classic Caponata includes aubergine as the main ingredient, in fact, it is also called aubergine Caponata (with the addition of onions, olives, tomato, celery, etc...) . Peperonata, however, as the name suggests, is prepared with peppers to which the ingredients of caponata are added, including sugar and wine vinegar which give these dishes their characteristic sweet and sour flavour.
