Capers in Salt, Masiello, 60g
Capers packed in salt have a fresher, almost floral flavour and aroma. They keep their shape and firmness better, too.
Rinse brined capers before using. Salt-packed capers are too salty to be eaten straight from the jar; soak them in cool water for about 15 minutes and rinse in several changes of water. If the capers are large, you can chop them roughly unless you want a big burst of caper flavour.
For an unusual garnish or salad addition, pat capers dry and then lightly fry them in a little olive oil. They'll get crisp and open up like the little flowers they are. Also a great addition to fish meals.
