Caponata for canning

I received an unexpected bounty of fresh-picked Japanese eggplant last night. I'm thinking about making and canning caponata. I see direction about not canning eggplant straight but this sounds safe. So many options online. Lookiing for a sweet- savory version, maybe with golden raisins. Any suggestions? Thanks.

I'm not sure if you can find the recipe online, but I recently made the caponata in Nancy Silverton's Mozza cookbook (from Pizzeria Mozza in LA.) Really good version, sweet/savory - recipe calls for dried currants, but I don't see why you couldn't sub golden raisins if you prefer.

I haven't put mine on Food52 yet, but it's here: http://meatballsandmilkshakes...

You could definitely substitute golden raisins for the currants, it's a nice sweet-savory mix.

I had success making Cupcake921's "Whole Lotta Caponata." Raisins, plus cauliflower and fennel, too!
