I had the most amazing caponata while I was in Rome. It was the first one I ever had so I cannot actually speak to it authenticity, knowing that this is a traditional Sicilian dish. The amazing part is that my SO hates eggplant, capers and olives, but gobbled this stuff up. I have looked through a lot of recipes and they vary quite a bit. The one I had was definitely on the sweet side, I cannot recall if there were raisins or currants in it.
Has anyone had success with a sweeter, very well stewed, version of the dish?
