Caperberries

Caperberries, alcaparrones, are the fruit of the caper plant, capparis, which is native to the mediterranean. They are preserved by pickling, usually in wine vinegar and have the stalks left on so that they are easy to pick up.

They are juicy and slightly crunchy with a refreshing taste somewhat reminiscent of olives. Caperberries are served as a side dish or with tapas and are really good mixed with olives.
