I get deliveries from Moondance Farms every Monday evening. CSA boxes are like presents for me. As I sort through all the goodies, I think of favorite recipes. I knew when I saw the eggplant I would make Margret’s recipe for Caponata. It would be the perfect sweet/sour New Year’s dish for Rosh HaShanah.
Margret would make it as an appetizer for family gatherings. It was always fantastic! One Christmas I asked for the recipe and she happily wrote it on the back of a piece of wrapping paper.
I made it so often the paper didn’t hold up, so I scanned it. Now when I look at it written in her hand writing I smile widely and remember the good times. 9-9-10
