The capers are tasty and fruity. They are preserved in organic olive oil from Mani Bläuel in Greece. Capers are particularly popular in dishes such as Vitello Tonnato, Puttanesca sauce, Tartar sauce and Salade Niçoise. They add an intense flavour to dishes and offer a pleasant salty note. With capers, you can add a Mediterranean touch to your pasta sauces.

Capers are small, pickled flower buds of the caper shrub (Capparis spinosa). The caper shrub is a plant species found in various regions of the world, including the Mediterranean, parts of Asia and some parts of North America.
Harvesting capers requires special attention. It is a laborious task, involving picking the flower buds individually from the bushes by hand in spring. The decisive factor here is the right timing: the buds should still be firm, closed and as small as possible, as this is when they have their most intense aroma.
What happens after the harvest?
Capers cannot be eaten raw. After harvesting, capers must be dried for at least one day and then pickled in brine or in a mixture of brine and vinegar.
