 It's very cherished Bulgarian Traditional Meal, which preparation is usually Family Ritual - a good tradition from the past, when the whole family members get together and everybody helps. One lovely way for the family to do things together, keeping the spirit of the Family warmth, devotion, union.
   The preparation usually takes time during the Fall season - the season of the Harvest. Than, the people get together and start to prepare for the Winter. They make different type of meals - "LIUTENITZA" ("ЛЮТЕНИЦА"), "KYOPOULOU" ("КЬОПУЛУ"), "APETITKA" ("АПЕТИТКА"), "TOMATOES WITH PEPPER" ("ДОМАТИ С ПИПЕР"), KOMPOTS ("КОМПОТИ"), MARMALADES, JAMS and other. 
   After - they are conserving the meals in jars, and placing them in cool, dry, dark places (usually in the house basement or storage place).
   Every family has different variants or their own variant of these receipts. It can be changed, according to the different taste and preferences.
   
   Here, I will share one example, one possible variant.

   After clean them from the burned skin one by one over the kitchen sink, under slightly running drops of cold water. (The cold water will help the hot skin to separated from the vegetable without damage.)
   Use more water for the Eggplants to remove the bitter taste from them and leave a side to drain.

   Clean the Pepper carefully, but not under too much water, because you don't want to lose the delicious natural juice.

   Put them into a pot and set a fire. At the beginning it can be more powerful to help the water to evaporate faster (but don't burn them. You will decide what degree, according to your own stove.)

   The more the water evaporates, the more the tomatoes will splashing hot drops in all directions. That's why, cover the pot with anti-splashing cover. (This can save you from a lot of problems lately.)

   Simply, make trace on the bottom and if it covers fast back, it means - it's not ready.
