When I titled one of recent patterns 'Zakuska', I did know that it was the word for an hors d'œuvre, but I didn't know much beyond that.
Imagine my delight when Ildiko, who lives in Romania, sent me a recipe! It looks delicious! I'd have to forego all but a little oil, but otherwise, this is a recipe I can and will use!
For those who are like me (and need to look up 'Bain Marie'), a double-boiler is essentially a stove-top version of a Bain Marie.
Ildiko is a talented zentangler as well as a cook. She's just started a blog, Cukipok Doodles, for her zens.
Ildiko's recipe (Enjoy!):
the recipe is saying that we'll need:
10 grilled eggplants
30 pieces red pepper (chopped)
2 liter tomatoe juice(homemade would be great)
1 kg onion (chopped)
1 liter oil
salt(after your taste)
you frie the pepper then the onion in the oil than you add the tomatoe juice,eggplant and salt.stir it about 1 hour.put it while hot in glass jars and" bain marie" them 1 and half hour.
i put some newspaper at the bottom of container and also a cover it whit a lid.i hope it's understoodable :)
