In Eva’s hometown in Calabria, people eat a lot of fresh local produce and, as a result, they use creative methods to preserve their food for later seasons. I’ve come to appreciate these delicious, jarred “pickles,” even though I live in a place where eggplants are available in stores year round. And you might, too!

In this video, Eva shares her family’s technique for pickling eggplants, peppers and zucchini, plus a recipe for the famous spicy condiment: BOMBA CALABRESE!
