  • Add remaining ingredients, cover, and cook, stirring occasionally, until mixture is dark and thick like chutney, about 30 minutes.

  • Make ahead: Up to one day; let cool, then chill airtight.

  • Wine pairing: Ceja 2008 Pinot Noir. The earthy berry fruit in the wine makes the sweetness of the fresh eggplant pop; a hint of sassafras doubles the effect.
