Capers Tips

These capers are cultivated in the island of Pantelleria and preserved in artisanal sea salt from Trapani.  They have an intense aromatic taste, high content of vitamins A, C, and B. Capers are the unopened flower buds of a Mediterranean bush. A great ingredient that brings sour-salty flavors in dishes, especially in sauces, fish recipes. Salt-packed capers are known for being less onion / radish aromas and more floral with notes of violets and raspberries.
