Caponata (version VII)

1 pound eggplant
1 tablespoon salt
1/4 cup olive oil
1 large onion, chopped
3 red peppers, cut into strips
2 garlic cloves, chopped
1 large carrot, peeled and diced
1 pound ripe tomatoes, peeled and diced
1 cup black olives, pitted and cut in half
3 tablespoons wine vinegar
2 tablespoons sugar
1 tablespoon dried basil
2 tablespoons chopped dill

Peel the eggplant, cut into cubes, and sprinkle with salt. Let stand for 30 minutes. Pat the eggplant pieces dry with a paper towel. Heat the oil in a large saucepan. Add the cut eggplant and simmer for 10 minutes uncovered, on high heat, stirring frequently. Add all other ingredients, lower the heat, cover and simmer for 40 minutes.
