Ingredients

1 small red bell pepper, seeded and julienne
6 garlic cloves
1 tablespoon oregano leaves
1 tablespoon capers
1/2 teaspoon dried hot red pepper flakes
3 cups white wine vinegar
2 tablespoons sugar


Peel the eggplant and cut into 1/8 inch julienne strips about 2 inches long.


Place the eggplant in a colander.


Add the salt and toss well.


Cover the colander, place over a large bowl, and let stand 1 hour.


Combine the oil, onion, pepper and garlic in a large, heavy non-reactive Dutch oven or deep skillet.


Place over medium heat, and sauté the mixture for 5 min.


Add the eggplant and sauté until golden on all sides, about 5 min.


Stir in the oregano, capers and hot pepper flakes.


Remove the pan from the heat and divide the eggplant mixture among 6 sterilized half-pint jars.


Return the Dutch oven to the stove and add the vinegar add sugar.


Turn the heat up to high and bring the mixture to a boil.


Reduce the heat and simmer for 5 min.


Remove the pan from the heat and spoon the liquid mixture equally into the 6 jars, leaving a 1/4 inch head space in each jar.


Seal the jars and process in a boiling water bath for 15 min.


Let cool and store in a cool, dark place for 2 - 3 weeks before using.
