Favuzzi aperitif caperberries

Description

Our caperberries are marinated in a sweet prosecco syrup with a hint of vinegar. Their firm, crunchy flesh pops under the teeth, revealing a surprising tangy caramelized flavour.

Uses

Deliciously sweet, our caperberries are a superb complement to charcuterie and cheese platters. Serve them as a hors d'oeuvre instead of olives and pickles, or chop them finely into a beef or salmon tartare. They will add a hint of sweetness to your smoked salmon bagels.

Artisan

The De Laurentiis family owns an artisanal business in the Abruzzo mountain region. For two generations, it has been drawing on traditional ingredients and know-how to offer products with an authentically Italian taste. The family grows organic tomatoes, saffron and other seasonings on its own plots of land, and turns them into sauces and condiments thanks to a veritable regiment of cooks who busily tend the ovens.

Origin

Roccascalegna, Abruzzo, Italy.

History and anecdotes

Capers are the buds of the caper shrub, while the larger caperberries are its fruit. Both are served marinated and are very popular in Mediterranean cuisine.

Ingredients

Caperberries 60%, prosecco wine, white wine vinegar, sugar, sea salt, citric acid.

The artisanal business Casina Rossa (red house in Italian) has been based in the Abruzzo mountains for two generations. The cooks prepare typically Italian specialties following their grandmothers’ methods, such as simmering tomato sauces over low heat. The company focuses on using the best local products and superior quality ingredients. The artisans’ talent and know-how are the reason Favuzzi chose them to make its branded tomato sauces and truffle olive oil.
