While hiding in the house because of the ridiculous heat earlier in August, Judy and I have been putting the finishing touches on our cookbook. This means countless hours of testing, sampling and typing up recipes. It is a lot of work, but the air conditioner is on and we are tasting everything, so what could be better than that?
We had a few eggplant slices and zucchini chunks left over at the end of one day and the last thing we wanted to think about was dinner! Sooooooooo … Joy being very much like our Dad, who couldn't throw anything away, decided to use the scraps and chop up some onions and garlic and threw it all together to cook. She let it simmer for about 25 minutes until the vegetables were soft and melting. The most amazing “jam”-like spread was created!
