There are capers and there are capers. These are “The Excellence of Italy” one of a kind from the island of Pantelleria, Sicily. Pantelleria island is a hot, dry, wind-swept volcanic island south of Sicily and east of Tunisia. As a result, the capers from Pantelleria are the best of all. The four main reasons are: the island’s volcanic soil give the capers their particular taste; the temperature of the island alternates between hot days and cool nights therefore giving the capers their strong fragrance; there is a rich tradition of growing and picking capers on Pantelleria; and last but not least, the particular caper variety, which grows only in Pantelleria (the cultivar spinosa nocellara), is a very special and rare plant. Pantelleria capers are so unique that they are the only capers that are certified IGP (Indicazione Geografica Protetta).These remarkable Sicilian Salted Capers of Pantelleria are naturally preserved by the sea salt and can be used for pasta dishes, meat dishes, sauces and various condiments.
