|These caperones were donated to me by my neighbours|
Throughout the Mediterranean caperones (which are large capers) grow everywhere, wildly and in profusion. They are wonderful in olive oil infused with garlic or chillies and make a great tapa.
The ancient Greeks used them to prevent a build-up of gas in the stomach but I just eat them because they are most moreish. Very.
And after trying these you won’t go back to those tiny ones sold in jars at British supermarkets. I promise. OK, OK I accept that the small ones work well when making a sauce for Skate, for example.
