This very simple spread is made up of an eggplant, roasted until it is totally soft, scraped into a food processor with colatura, vinegar, some peperoncini and olive oil, all of which is blended till smooth. You can add a squeeze of lemon if you wish. I scraped mine into a dish--it was sort of gray and unexciting. I covered it with plastic and tucked into the fridge. That was yesterday. Today, I took it out and dipped some pita into it. It's still not pretty, but it tastes so good. I think it's the colatura--magical stuff. Whatever--those hours in the fridge let everything meld in a mystical way so that this rather mundane concoction turned into a smooth, unctuous mass which is full of subtle yet surprising flavor. Very good stuff.
