Recipe: Caponata Siciliana

They say that every Sicilian has their own caponata recipe. It’s an easy stew that makes the most of late summer vegetables, but is popular all year round.

Caponata is more of a salad or an appetiser that is altogether savoury, sweet, and sour, thanks to the use of briny olives, salty capers and a spike of vinegar. Because it tastes better the next day, it’s the perfect make-ahead appetiser to serve over crostini or toasted bread of your choice.
