"The whole Mediterranean... the wine, the ideas... seems to ride in the sour pungent taste of those black olives... A taste older than meat, older than wine. A taste as old as cold water."
-Lawrence Durrell, Author
Forget butter on your bread at dinner. If you are going to spread some fat spread this stuff. This is so high in the good fats and virtually no saturated fat. And there is soooo much more flavor!
These are the flower bud of a bush from the family Capparidaceae. Cultivated in the hot climates of the Mediterranean and Asia, the immature flowers are picked and then pickled in vinegar brine. They are bland when raw but pickled capers are pungent with a sharp piquant flavor.
