This is a very fascinating recipe I got from my friend in Michigan, when I visited in 2012. Bonnie is French Canadian and loves to make these when we visit her.They are so delicious. She says she is Italian in heart, but the crepes are French Canadian. LOL...Whatever....they are delicious. You can make your own caponata or use the canned as in the recipe.
