It's traditional dish here in Serbia, made before winter.

This also is not a review of recipe but comment on ajvar. I am currently living in Slovenia and enjoying ajvar immensely. It is a condiment here, often served with grilled meat. Most often it is served with a grilled sausage called cevapcici. I have asked local friends for the recipe but each family has their own, secret recipe or simply buy it from the grocery. The ajvar aisle is quite extensive! Thank you for posting this. I can't wait to try it and have with me always, even when not in the Balkins.

Delicious! I have tried commercial brands, and loved them. This one is sweeter than most, but still yummo!

This is not a review of the recipe. It is a review of ajvar in the abstract. I bought some commercial ajvar the other day and was totally taken in by it. It's kind of a combination of an Indian condiment and a Mexican salsa or mole. Wonderful on crackers, vegetables or toast. I would suggest, if you like heat, adding some hot chiles peppers to the other two vegetables. Haven't tried this recipe, but it seems to match the ingredients well and makes sense. I'm going to buy some eggplant today.
