Eggplant zacusca & # 8211 my mother's recipe & # 8211 preamble

Zacusca is a laborious work, consuming time and energy. I usually prepare it in 2 stages: in the evening I bake eggplant and capsicum (or donuts). I peel the eggplants and drain them overnight in plastic strainers (so that they do not oxidize). Place the baked peppers in trays or pots with lids, sprinkle with salt and let them sweat for 30 minutes before peeling. Then I take out their stalks and seeds and cut them into strips. I leave them overnight but not in a strainer but in a bowl (the juice left by them has a great taste and I put it all in the zacusca).

The next day I chop the eggplant, grind the baked peppers and onions and boil the zacustia. I prefer capsicums and donuts because they are much meatier and sweeter than white peppers. The latter also change the color of the zacustia, making it yellower, paler.

Eggplant zacusca is boiled in large, wide saucepans to have a large evaporation surface. Place the pan on a metal disk (not directly on the flame) and cook over low heat. Careful! Hot zacusca sprinkles very hard! It must be mixed constantly and energetically! Burns with hot zacusca are very serious!

I made zacusca from 6 kg of eggplant (double portion) and I got a huge pot (about 10 kg of zacusca, that is about 10 jars of 800 ml + a bowl for tasting). In the following I will give you the recipe for 3 kg of eggplant. All ingredients are weighed raw, before baking / cleaning!

They are best used homemade broth (recipe here) or homemade tomato juice (recipe here).

Now is the time to prepare it! The market abounds with eggplants and peppers, at very advantageous prices. The zacusca was always planted in late August or early September. The quantities are for raw, whole vegetables.

In winter you can make this wonderful eggplant zacusca from Baked or frozen peppers (recipe here) and ripe and frozen eggplants or put in a jar (recipe here).

If you have eggplants and peppers already baked and cleaned, you will have to take into account the fact that they are halved.

From the quantities below come out approx. 5 kg of eggplant zacusca with baked peppers. That is about 14 jars of 350 ml or 7 large jars of 700 ml.

  • 3 kg raw eggplant
  • 1.5 kg of capsicum or mixture with raw, whole donuts
  • 0.5 kg of vegetables (2 carrots, 1 parsley, 1 parsnip, a small celery)
  • 0.5 kg onions
  • 500 ml of sunflower oil
  • 1 L of tomato broth (or canned tomatoes)
  • 4 teaspoons salt (put 3 and taste at the end)
  • 2 teaspoons ground pepper (or berries) - I put ground
  • 2 bay leaves

Boil eggplant zacusca & # 8211 my mother's recipe

I chose the largest pan in the house (special for zacusca) and I placed it on a metal disk (not directly on the fire), over medium to low heat.

  1. I poured in it the remaining oil (400 ml) and I put the grated onion to harden, with 2 teaspoons of salt. I left it to harden until it became glassy (I didn't fry it!)
  2. I put the ground capsicum in the pan. I brought the zacusca back to a boil over low heat. I stirred constantly.
  3. The hardened vegetables followed. I stirred again until the composition started to boil.
  4. I added the chopped eggplant and the broth.

Immediately after I put the eggplant and the broth I added the pepper, another 2 teaspoons of salt and the bay leaves.

From now on, the fun begins! Eggplant zacusca should boil for about 60 minutes on low heat. It splashes terribly, like a hot volcano. I sat and mixed it until I got bored. My mother also came to help me. She told me that the sign that the zacusca was ready was the appearance of oil on its surface. That is, small puddles of oil can be seen. Do not leave the zacusca unattended because you can paint your kitchen after that! I also read recipes where it said that you can cover the pan with a lid (half-open) and that you can mix in it occasionally, every 10 minutes. I tried this and after only 5 minutes my zacusca stuck to the bottom of the pot. I think it also depends on the type of pot & # 8230

I'll tell you how I did it: I mixed it for 60 minutes! That's what it looks like when it's ready. It has dropped a bit and it feels like it's done.

PONT & # 8211 you can boil eggplant zacusca and in the oven & # 8211 see here how to proceed!
