Page12 POST-GAZETTE, AUGUST 8, 2014 Benvenutil This week's recipe, a classic vegetable "antipasto" (appetizer), is a "must have" on every southern Italian table. Knowing how to make "Melanzane sott'olio" (eggplants pre- served in olive oil) is one of the essential skills of a southern Italian cook, a tradition passed from mother to daughter. A taste of this rustic antipasto takes me back to the many Sum- mer vacations spent with "zla" at her house in Calabria where melanzane sott'olio were served on a slice of brick-oven bread alongside sharp local pecorino cheese, freshly made ricotta (that was brought warm from the shepherd, still in its mold made out of straw and wrapped in fig leaves) homemade cured olives and the sweetest tomatoes that my aunt would pick from her garden and sundry right on her balcony. Ajar of "Melanzane sott'ol/o" makes a wonderful little present that will always be remembered. Melanzane sott'olio Four 12 oz. Mason jars 4 large eggplants Fresh mint 6 cups white wine vinegar 6 cloves garlic Salt Basil Red pepper flakes Extra virgin olive oil Preparation: Wash and pat dry the eggplants, slice them into inch discs discarding the ends. Slice the discs into inch strips. Layer the eggplant in a large deep bowl sprinkling salt generously in between. Cover and refrigerate overnight. The next morning, rinse the salt off the eggplants, then drain and squeeze them well setting them on a kitchen towel to dry. In the meantime, bring a pot of vinegar to a boil. Transfer the eggplants into the pot, let simmer for 5 minutes, then drain and squeeze well. Lay them on a kitchen towel to air dry for about 2 hours. In a large pot of water, boil the Mason jars and their lids for 30 minutes then let them cool and air dry completely on a clean towel. Slice the garlic cloves and tear several leaves of mint and basil. Pour a little olive oil into the bottom of the jar then pack tightly the first layer of eggplants {about 1 inch}. Top with a couple slices of garlic, some mint and basil leaves, some red pepper flakes and a little more olive oil. Repeat with 1 inch layers until the jar is full. Top with inch of olive oil before sealing the jar. Let rest in a dark, dry place overnight. For optimal results, let the jars rest for one month.

President Putin and Russia are our adversaries and the plane incident in East Ukraine shows what happens when the U.S. draws down from the world. Bad things happen either by accident or design. We need a president who can take decisive action when need be. In the case of the Ukraine, we need to let Russia know what is not allowed. There is a big thing between doing nothing and going to war.

This is Not Happy Hour for Democrats Reportedly at a recent Democratic fundraiser in the Hamptons, President Obama actually told the donors at a dinner that it was Happy Hour for Democrats in 2014. Does now look like happy hour to anyone? Is this America's Happy Hour right now? The real "Happy Hour" comes when U.S. Congress decides to do its job as the second branch of our govern- ment, when Democrats who control the U.S. Senate and Democrats in the U.S. House stop genuflecting at the feet of our president. In America, we have three branches of government who are designed to be a check and balance on each other. In America, we do not have a One Man Government. The Revolutionary War was not a happy hour. It was a painful struggle fought with a desire to create a govern- ment of free people. Leadership is more than photo-ops, fundraisers, golf games and vacations. We had some great leaders in our past. As a baby boomer, three such leaders come to mind, Jack Kennedy, Lyndon Johnson and Ronald Reagan. We need a leader today that our past is prologue too. Assembled in the USA* If you have been looking for a good TV lately, you have probably seen those store signs reading, "Assembled in the USA* and are lulled into believing the TV is American made, but you would be incorrect. When they say assembled in the USA, it really means mostly put together in China. Element Electronics Corp., has a TV factory down in South Carolina which daily ships out TV sets across the country mostly to Walmart stores with that assembled tag on them. Don't be fooled. Once back when I was a kid, over 150 American companies built televisions, today we must import even the parts for them.
