Product Description

Sicilian Capers of Pantelleria. The capers of Pantelleria are the Italian most precious capers (Capparis Spinosa Inermis Cultivar Nocellara). They are the only ones who received the PGI label (Protected Geographical Indication).

The caper has the power to grant a special taste that enriches food creating very tasty dishes.

Far, far better than anything I've found in markets.

As soon as I finished dinner I called my Mother to tell her how much better these were that the ones in a jar.

Salted capers have a better texture and flavor than brined capers.

My husband is from Sicily and when there a few summers ago, we bought a large bag of these type of capers (in Lipari). When we ran out, off I went to look on Amazon and low and behold, these arrived and we were thrilled. They have the same flavor as the ones we bought while in Sicily and they are from Pantelleria which my husband says is the place known for capers. They have keep well in the refrigerator for the past months. They have TONS of salt so make sure you rinse them very, very , very well before using!!

the capers from Pantelleria are the best capers you can find, and the best way to preserve them is with Salt, make sure to rinse them well under running water. I never use capers in brine. Here is a great recipe where to use caper: [...]

I've been searching for quality salted capers ever since the brand I loved, Di Garanzea, is no longer available. The reviews made the product sound great. I now wonder about the people who wrote them. Received the capers today after ordering them yesterday. The service was great, but the capers are inedible. Tried rinsing off the salt, even tried soaking them, but no matter what I did, there was no flavor whatsoever except extreme saltiness. The only use I can think of for this expensive purchase is to sprinkle the entire package in the garden as a slug and snail killer.

I've had good luck making purchases in the past based on Amazon customer feedback, but this product no way resembles the glowing reviews here. Buyer beware.

These salty little delights are the tastiest capers we have ever enjoyed.
The first couple times I used them I did the soak and rinse method to decrease their saltiness.
After those initial uses though I just cut out all other salt entirely from a meal where I planned to use these capers and just chopped a small handful roughly and threw them in, like caper salt.
Quick and delicious!

These capers are large and sweet. They are much more complex-tasting than the capers in brine that you see at most grocery stores.

I first knew that another way of preserving capers existed was in a restaurant, which served fish with fried capers. Wow. These capers are big and juicy. They do need to be rinsed in water. Keep rinsing until you achieve the taste you want. Not an arduous task at all. With these capers, I tried that fish recipe and came close. (Need more practice.)

I'm on to my 2nd bag of these capers. They're pricey, but the flavor is so much better than those in brine that they seem like a bargain.

One piece of advice - rinse the capers, then soak them in water for at least 15 minutes (and 30 isn't over-doing it) to remove some of the saltiness. They're more enjoyable that way.

I like Capers in a few dishes that I prepare. They are put into a Tomato sauce. There are a few recipes I use. Not going into it now. I guess what I an saying is I do not eat them plain or in salads.

My whole life I have eaten these prepared by my Grandmother, Mother and myself. The thing is I never had Salted Capers before. The Capers I am used to eating are the ones in Jars. This was my first time cooking with the salted ones.

I was not sure how to prepare them. I thought that I may need to soak them. I decided to just rinse them under cold water and put them into my sauce. Well let me tell you... They were delicious. As soon as I finished dinner I called my Mother to tell her how much better these were that the ones in a jar. So now I am going to order another package. I am hooked on these and from now on I will add twice as many to my sauce.

I ordered these a few months ago and waited to eat them before I wrote my review. Sorry I waited so long. If you add Capers to your Italian Style Sauces then Buy these. You will really enjoy them. Even if you were on the fence about Capers before these will make you love them..
