This Italian eggplant dish is excellent with a slice of french bread and a chunk of Provolone or Parmesan cheese. We love eggplant prepared this way, and so I thought I'd share the recipe with our readers. It is very easy to make. It is great to have some in the refrigerator for snack time. If you like eggplant then you got to try this because it is delicious! The written recipe is below the video.
Spicy Pickled Eggplant
6 med eggplants sliced thinly
1 hot red pepper, chopped
10 cloves of garlic, chopped
1 bunch of parsely, chopped
1 red hot pepper, chopped
2 tsps sea salt
1/2 cup extra virgin olive oil
Optional: 1 tbs Cayenne
Peel and slice eggplants and layer in colander, salting each layer.
Cover with a plate and place something heavy on top of the plate. This helps to release the bitter juices of the eggplant.
After one hour, chop the eggplant and boil for 5 minutes in 1 cup of apple cider vinegar and 1 cup of water.
Drain and place eggplant in a bowl with the chopped parsely, red pepper, and garlic.
Add the salt and extra virgin olive oil and mix well.
For those who like it really spicy, add more cayenne to your liking.
Place eggplant mixture into jars and cover the eggplant with more olive oil so no eggplant is exposed.
Place the jars in the refrigerator to marinate. After one month the eggplant will be ready to eat! Enjoy!
