Many are familiar with tart, tangy capers and the gastronomic chic they provide to a variety of foods. However, most people don't know what they actually are. Capers are the hand-picked unripened flower buds of a shrub that can be found growing alongside the Mediterranean Coast of Spain. Considered to be the finest are the young tender buds called non-pareilles. These tasty non-pareilles are packaged in our patented Alessi White Balsamic Vinegar. Capers add a tart and tangy zest that can be enjoyed in many dishes. Try them with your next sauce, pate`, smoked salmon, and much more.
