STORY OF MY LIFE
Surprise, surprise. Yes, here it is:
ProQuest is unavailable until 10:00 AM EST while we perform scheduled system maintenance. We apologize for this inconvenience and thank you for your patience.
There are 24,400 Google hits for "caponata." OED ("Miserable on Food") does not have an entry, but there is one 1954 hit. Merriam-Webster has 1951.
This is a good cite.
October 1965, SAN FRANCISCO, "Discoveries" by Jack Shelton, pg. 38, col. 3:
_CAPONATA_ is another wonderful product which comes in cans and is therefore always on hand for emergencies. Although Italians know it more as part of an antipasto, I serve it as an hors d'oeuvre to the delight of guests, who rarely--ifever--have tasted it before. _Caponata_ is an egg plant appetizer containing eggplant, tomato sauce, celery, capers, olives, onions, oil, sugar, vinegar and spices. It is packed in small 4 3/4 ounce cans under the Progresso label. To serve simply open a can and spoon onto melba toast or thin crackers. Sprinkle with lemon juice--an important touch to cut through the richness of the oil--and serve. There are extremely few items which can be used directly from the can to make an unusual and delicious hors d'oeuvre. For that reason I always keep several cans on hand. Although I think you'll join me in thinking _Caponata_ as a delicacy, it is not priced so, and is well below the cost of any cocktail spread. You'll find Progresso _caponata_ in almost any Italian grocery and well stocked supermarkets and gourmet shops.
