Capers Recipes: 22 Ways To Cook With The Buds

Sometimes in recipes, certain ingredients get taken for granted -- you don't spend too much time thinking of what a difference an ingredient makes, especially when it seems insignificant or small. In Mediterranean food some of the most flavorful ingredients are the smallest. We're talking about capers! Those tiny green specs, actually flower buds (click here to learn more on that) are salty, briny and pungent. Just a little goes a long way (maybe that's one reason they may be taken for granted). Many recipes wouldn't be the same without capers, like the classic piccata sauce, eggplant caponata or even homemade tartar sauce. After looking through our slideshow, you'll see just how much of a difference capers make.
