This recipe is so close to mine it is uncany. I learned how to make it from my Great Grandmother. We did not add the raisens nor vinegar there seems to mbe enough acid in the tomates. I tried it with the pignole like you suggested and wow I have a new recipe Thanks.
This dish is delicious! Perfect for crackers or crusty bread. I forgot to drain tomatoes so it's got more "broth" than it should, but I drained and the Caponata was really good. I'll be making this again and again! It makes a HUGE batch..perfect for a party. Thanks!!
