  2. 2. Rinse the aubergine and blot dry with paper towels and cut into 1/2" cubes.
  3. 3. Combine the aubergine, celery, onion, oil, and garlic in a 3 qt glass casserole. Microwave uncovered for 10 min, stirring once after about 5 min.
  4. 4. Stir in the tomato. Microwave uncovered for 10 min.

  6. 6. Stir in the capers, olives, parsley, and black pepper.
  7. 7. Either serve immediately or possibly cold at room temperature and serve with crostini or possibly crackers. However, caponata is best when flavors have been allowed to mellow for 24 hrs before serving.
