grandma's pot le gel
a recipe by
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! Wooden utensils are recommended to avoid oxidization. http://sugar-n-spiceandeverythingnice.com/2015/02/06/grandmas-pot-le-gel

Ingredients For grandma's pot le gel
1 tspoil (i suggest olive oil, it's healthiest. start with 1 teaspoon. another recipe we found says 4-5 tablespoons. you may not need all of that.)
1 mdonion (finely grated, or finely chopped)
3 lggarlic cloves, mashed (the amount you use is to your preference)

How To Make grandma's pot le gel
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!
