A little jar of zesty capers is a must-have on any chef’s pantry. In seconds they can heighten and transform a dish from simple to zinging, adding salty, zesty flavor to meats, pastas, foie gras, smoked salmon and many other recipes. Campomar’s Organic Capers are milder than most we’ve encountered, with less bitterness and a good balance of salt and vinegar.
Small, pea-sized capers are ubiquitous in Mediterranean dishes, but also often found topping smoked salmon on a bagel. They’re pungent and zesty, but what are capers? Capers are the flower buds of a prickly bush, picked, sun-dried and pickled with salt. This simple process is quite laborious, since the harvesting is done by hand, each bud delicately plucked. We love using them with fish, chicken, dark meats, or tossing them on pizza or pasta. They’re a very versatile ingredient, adding a zesty, juicy punch to a dish. Cod and capers are a great pairing, as is salmon and capers. Keep a jar around you pantry - you’ll be thankful that you did. If you're ordering our smoked salmon or foie gras, make sure you toss a jar of these in your basket as well!
Camponar Nature sources their capers from organic farms in Seville and Alicante, and their entire process is certified organic in Spain and by the USDA. This commitment to organic, sustainable farming without the use of pesticides or any artificial chemicals. Healthy, all-natural pure foods made with Spanish expertise.
