My Grandma was notorious for her home cooked family favorites. There was never a visit without a hot, homemade pie. Another recipe was for this eggplant dip. My Poppy adored this dip! She had given me the recipe, but I lost it. Poppy has since passed on and Grandma has dementia, and so for the last couple of years, I tried searching the internet without luck. Luck changed when Grandma and I were looking at a recipe for ratatouille, when it all came back to her!

How to Make Grandma's Pot Le Gel

Step-by-Step

  • 1Microwave until soft.

    I don't recall the exact microwaving time, but I recommend starting with five minutes and then another five, then another, until it will slightly 'sink' in it's appearance. DO NOT OVERCOOK!
  • 2After cooking, cut the green tips off. Peel the skin, cut in half and scoop out the seeds.

    I remember my grandmother using a grapefruit spoon for this.
  • 3Mash the meat in a bowl. Use a little olive oil. Start with 1 teaspoon.
  • 4Add salt, pepper, onion, and garlic (optional).
  • 5Cover, chill and serve with crackers or matzoh. This makes an excellent accompaniment alongside your vegetable trays!
