Caravaglio capers

$10.00

Salted capers from Sicily from Azienda Agricola Caravaglio. Capers are the bud of a caper plant and these were grown organically on Salina, one of the Aeolian Islands. Salina produces wonderful capers due to the climate and soil. Plump, fruity capers packed in Sicilian sea salt, bring forth a richer flavor than the briny grocery store capers. Soak in water for approximately 10 minutes to rinse off the excess salt.
Product of Italy. Refrigerate after opening. 3.17 oz

Description

On the coast of Sicily, in the town of Salina, Antonino Caravaglio has made a life out of cultivating a flowering bush whose buds lend their savory flavor to dishes the world over. While this plant produces a lovely pink flower, the appearance of it marks the passing of a caper’s life – it is the bud of this flower that Caravaglio harvests and buries in salt for 20 days, which becomes the caper we know. These capers are then aged for 2 months, allowing the floral flavor to blossom.
