This is an old recipe from my great Grandmother. She used to make it every year and give it out for Christmas. I used to make this with her in her restaurant in Vancouver when I was a small child, and when her daughter, my grandmother took over the restaurant, we made it together for over 15 years. The original recipe was my great grandmothers and my grandmother and I updated it about 20 years ago. It calls for tuna and anchovies, but you can omit both of these to make it vegan, just add 2 tsp. of sea salt to the ingredients instead. This is an all-day recipe and also a great one to get the kids involved with. I hope you enjoy it. NOTE - You can also chop up all the ingredients into small pieces and cook and process the same way. The style above is traditional Italian style which is served as a side dish. The American/Canadian style is to chop things up small and serve with crackers.
