Caperberries are tender and briny with a nice crunch. Related to capers, which are the flower buds of the same bush, caperberries are less salty and have a more olive-like flavor. Caperberries are handpicked in midsummer and naturally fermented to preserve their delicate texture, green color, and unique flavor.
We serve them chilled as a tapa, or added to salads. They also make a unique cocktail garnish. Caperberries are the fruit of a wild flowering bush, Capparis Spinosa, which grows in profusion along the long Mediterranean coastline of Spain. These juicy pickled treats are wonderful with seafood and as a garnish for salads. Around our house, they generally do not get as far as the dinner table - my family hangs around the kitchen during meal preparation and eats them right out of the jar!
