    For one 250 mL jar (1 cup)

    • 150 gr (1/3 lb.) eggplant, i.e., 1 small Italian eggplant, washed, peeled and finely diced
    • 3 black figs (approximately 65 gr or 1/8 lb.), washed and finely diced
    • 3 tbsp. olive oil
    • 1 bay leaf
    • 1/4 tsp. fine salt
    • 1/4 tsp. chilli flakes
    • 80 mL (1/3 cup) apple cider vinegar
    • 80 mL (1/3 cup) maple syrup


    1. Heat the olive oil in a pot on medium to low heat.
    2. Add the eggplant, figs, bay leaf and chilli flakes. Cook for 20 minutes, stirring with a wooden spoon from time to time, until the eggplant is softened.
    3. Add the salt, vinegar and maple syrup. Increase the heat and bring the mixture to a boil.
    4. When it reaches boiling point, reduce the heat to low and simmer for 10 minutes, stirring occasionally until the mixture is candied.
    5. Pour the mixture into a hot sterilized jar. Allow to cool, and keep in the fridge.

    Serve with a cheese plate, or spread on a sandwich, such as a grilled cheese sandwich, etc.
