Je kan kappertjes zowel rauw als in gekookte bereidingen gebruiken. Ofwel ontzout je de kappertjes gedurende een uur of twee, ofwel ontzout je niet en hoef je geen zou meer toe te voegen aan je bereiding.

Appelkappertjes daarentegen moeten sowieso een ontzoutingsproces ondergaan gedurende 1 dag.

In short
  • Capers that grown on vulcanic islands like Salina have a unique terroir
  • A caper is the bud of a caper plant before it flowers. It's that simple!
  • Following the manual harvest of the capers, they are stored in wooden vats with layers if salt. After about 5 to 6 weeks of salt ripening, the capers are ready to be put into jars.
  • Caper berries are the flower of the caper plant.
