From the book "Sicilian Feasts" by Giovanna Bellia La Marca "Tomato catsup in capunatina is my secret ingredient; it might scandalize a Sicilian cook, but because it contains tomato, sugar, and spices, it's a perfect ingredient for this dish. Plain tomato sauce can be substituted."

- ¾ cup olive oil
- 2 green bell peppers (or red pepper - sliced)
- 2 onions
- 4 sticks celery
- 2 tablespoons salted capers (or in vinegar)
- ¼ cup tomato ketchup
- ¼ cup red wine vinegar
