Italian Capers add a zesty flavor to Mediterranean cuisine
For tangy dips and spreads, mix with fresh herbs and cream cheese, Greek yogurt, or sour cream.
Pair with salami, prosciutto, mortadella, and other charcuterie board meats.
Agostino Recca Capers are Italian capers preserved in vinegar to maintain flavor and texture. The flower buds picked from the capparis spinosa bush before they can mature into berries, capers are excellent in salads, fish dishes, and pasta recipes. They're a key ingredient in chicken piccata and spaghetti alla puttanesca, but can make just as delicious an addition to bagel spreads and potato salads!
Lightly fry with olive oil to bring out the rich aroma of these flower buds, then combine with butter, cream, lemon, and garlic for a rich and citrusy sauce that pairs well with baked salmon or braised chicken thigh. Serve with your favorite bottle of white wine or a refreshing glass of hard cider and enjoy the bright, tangy flavor of authentic Mediterranean capers.
