oil giardiniera

where can I find this in Montreal? DOesn't have to be from a nice little hole in the wall gourmet market. I have trouble finding some even in big supermarkets (although I haven't looked that hard). I can find individual veggies (cauliflower, peppers, olives and mushrooms) in oil, but the mix of pepper, cauliflowers and carrots is always water.

  1. Milano sells it at their cheese counter.

    1. I wanna say almost any grocery, but you gotta look.
      Theres a few brands including Molisana (called Antipasto in Oil, mild or hot), Aurora (called Antipasto Calabrese), Valli (don't remember exact name), and 2 or 3 more.
      Usually in 375ml jars, but you'll find larger in Italian groceries.

      In Super C, they're in the international aisle.
      In Metro (or is it IGA?), usually next to the pickled vegetables (as at Frutta Si).

      Note, they're not created equal; some are LOADED with eggplant, some are hotter than others, some have olives, etc etc.

      1. Try this recipe. Way better than store-bought.
        Use half olive, half canola oil instead.Prevents gelling in the fridge.
