“This recipe came from a Italian lady, who gave her daughter the directions and ingredients in ITALIAN! The daughter translated it into English. My father and I then worked on coming up with the proper amounts. My father had a wonderful sense of humor and recommended that you should "press the liquid out of the eggplant by running over it in the driveay, with a Lincoln Continental." For those of you that don't have access to a Lincoln Continental, I recommend putting the eggplant in a colander, placing a plate over the top of it and adding heavy weights to press the liquid out!! This is an elegant way to eat eggplant and makes a great appetizer!!”
