Bomba Calabrese (Spicy Calabrian Pepper Spread)
One of the best kept Calabrian secrets is this spicy and versatile condiment. Process and sauté a mixture of mushrooms, onion and eggplant while you cut up a combination of bell, cherry and habanero peppers. Then process your peppers and add to your eggplant mixture with olive oil. For seasoning, add fennel seed, oregano and salt and keep on cooking until everything is tender, then finally add white wine vinegar. When it’s cool, spread on hearty bread or your favorite sandwich, toss with pasta, fill an omelet or top fish or pizza. What will you spice up with this savory spread?
