Capers belong to the Capparaceae family and are the marinated buds of the true caper bush (Capparis spinosa).

Origin

Caper bushes are native to Southern Europe and the entire Mediterranean region.

Harvest period

Late summer

Production

Capers are hand-picked and are unpalatable when raw. For this reason, they are usually dried overnight, marinated in brine or a salt and vinegar solution, then stored in vats. This produces capric acid and mustard oil glycosides, which give capers their savory flavor

Information

Capers are divided up into different categories based on their size. The general rule is that the smaller the caper, the finer and better the flavor and quality

Uses

One of the most popular German caper dishes is Königsberger Klopse (Prussian meatballs). Capers are also used in sauces as well as pastes and meat dishes.
