I made this and it is excellent... took me longer than specified but worth the time for sure ... also looks wonderful in the jars ... Thanks.

This is excellent !! I put up several quarts each year. The only changes I've made is using fresh oregano & parsley since I never seem to have basil available in my garden when I need it & cut the sugar to 1/4 cup.

This is an excellent recipe! It has the flavor of eggplant parmesan without the cheese. Easy to follow instructions.
