Why we love cooking with capers and caperberries 

Did you know both caperberries and capers come from the same plant? The caper bush produces both buds and berries, which are harvested at different times to give us two very different but equally delicious ingredients, as seen on bagels and in pasta dishes and zesty sauces. High-quality baby capers packed in brine or in salt add complexity, herbaceousness and seasoning to any dish you deploy them in. Likewise, caperberries add a pickled note, as well as their own subtle, unique flavour. Caperberries also make a great addition to a salad or cheeseboard, consumed in one single, crunchy bite. The Essential Ingredient stocks the highest quality caperberries and capers, available in any of our stores or online for delivery to anywhere in Australia.
