Francesca used to help her mum make this mix back in Calabria from when she was only 8 years old (55 years ago). They had to make their living off the land, there was always an abundance of vegetables on their farm. It was not the norm to buy food back then, so they had to create what they could using their own produce. In Italy, eggplants were in abundance in Summer, so the family would make enough to last them though the winter months. Fortunately for Francesca’s family and friends, eggplants in Australia are available all year round. Made at Cipri Italian. 300g
