Among the tastiest and most inviting buds, capers occupy a place of honor for their pleasantly salty taste, which is perfect for giving an extra touch of flavor to sauces for first and second courses, as well as in salads, as happens particularly in their land of origin, Sicily. On the market, capers can be found preserved either in oil, in vinegar or even in salt: the latter probably represents the best solution for preservation, as it does not alter their characteristic flavour. The healthiness of capers has been known since Antiquity, as evidenced by the writings of Dioscorides and Galen.


Capers can be preserved, depending on the case, in salt or alternatively also in vinegar, although the latter choice alters their aroma.


Capers are rich in very important nutrients, such as several groups of vitamins and iron, manganese and calcium.
