Wild Mountain Capers in Sea Salt
Capers are the cured flower buds of a native Mediterranean bush that grows in the mountains of the Mediterranean. Ours come from Les Moulins Mahjoub, family-owned and -operated (fourth generation!), located in the verdant Mejerda Valley in North Central Tunisia.
Unlike most commercial capers that are packed in brine, the Mahjoub's wild, hand-harvested capers are dried in sea salt to preserve their distinct flavor. Add them to salad dressings, marinades, cured salmon, and sautéed or grilled fish dishes. Capers work especially well with olives and tomatoes. With so many recipes these days calling for capers, you'll happily increase your cooking repertoire with a jar of these on hand. As with all of the Mahjoub products, these really special capers are produced using traditional farming methods, with no additives or artificial processes.
