130g Gourmet Sea Salt Capers (Capperi al Sale marino).

Capers preserved in Sicilian salt are far better than the ones in vinegar (These taste mainly of the vinegar), The ones in salt are more flowery, more like flower buds, which is of course what capers are.

They go easily with a broad range of flavours. Most often, they are combined with garlic and cured anchovies; they go equally well with tomato, green olives, celery, and herbs, such as basil, oregano, thyme, and parsley. Capers go into pasta sauces, they go with all kinds of meats, they complement fish.

To use capers in salt, first, rinse away the salt (unless the dish they’re going into is very badly in need of salt), and then, according to how much salt the dish will need, soak them in water for 15 minutes or more, remembering that as salt is drawn out, so is caper flavour. Capers are used either raw or cooked, but not cooked too much or they lose their character.

A simple way to enjoy these capers are with fresh bread with a drizzle of high quality olive oil.
