Caper Shoots and Young Leaves
We road tested these little beauties with some of our top chefs and they've been given the thumbs up.
Now we are happy to announce they are available to you too. Caper Leaves are rich in vitamins and antioxidants and contain rutin, they are in fact, one of the largest sources of rutin. Rutin is naturally formed on capers and leaves in the salting process. Vitamin-A, vitamin-K, niacin, and riboflavin are also found in capers.
We pick the fresh tender new season caper shoots, with leaves and tiny capers intact and simply brine them. This way you choose how you dress them. Toss them in a little olive oil and lemon juice, try them as an edible garnish on your seafood and meat dishes, mix them into salads. Or deep fry them for a unique antipasto or on your favourite platter. Even toss a few on top of your fav pizza. They go really well with anchovies too. I've included some really nice recipes which will be included.
Our new season caper shoots have a distinct peppery mild caper flavour and are very pleasant to eat.
Approximately 15 stems (each stem approx 8 leaves)
