Non-Pariel Organic Capers are small unopened flower buds harvested individually by hand and then dried in the Mediterranean sun. They are set in a brine of sea salt and water to preserve their rich unique flavor.
Piquant and salty, capers are a long time favorite in Mediterranean cuisine and are now globally known for their ability to brighten up a simple dish and use as a garnish. Their tangy lemony flavor is a must-have for tossing with chicken, veggies or topping a smoked salmon sandwich.
Chef Stacey’s note:
rinse the capers under water to remove some of the saltiness. I love to fry them in a little olive oil and drain on a paper towel. Now, these crunchy bits add texture to any dish.
