Honey Is Magic
In the days before biology and botany were understood, people thought it was a special kind of magic that turned flower nectar into honey.
Preheat oven to 400°. Lightly brush eggplant and bell pepper with 1 Tablespoon of olive oil. Place in a baking pan. Bake approximately 30 minutes turning vegetables occasionally, until eggplant is very soft. Remove from oven. Cool. Peel peppers and eggplant. Place in a food processor with remaining ingredients, including 4 tablespoons olive oil. Pulse, until well combined. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Refrigerate. When ready to serve cut pitas in quarters. Fold open. Brush lightly with oil. Toast under broiler, until just golden. Serve with eggplant dip.
