Pickup available at 3412 Monroe Road
Usually ready in 24 hours
The caper berry is the mature fruit of the caper plant. Larger than capers, the berries have seeds inside, which adds crunch to their texture. Their long, elegant stems make them perfect for use as garnishes in salads, charcuterie boards, and even cocktails. Pantelleria's volcanic soil is high in minerals which makes its capers very flavorful and often considered the best in the world.
Before using, rinse salted caper berries in a colander and soak in fresh water for a couple hours.
Kazzen was founded in 2004 by the D'Ancona brothers with the mission to develop and preserve the native capers and agriculture of their home, the beautiful Italian island of Pantelleria, in Mediterranean sea between Sicily and Tunisia. The volcanic island is also home to native varieties of oregano and grapes, which feature prominently in their products as well. Their production facility is situated right beside the growing fields so the fresh produce travels only meters to be processed. They use no preservatives or coloring in any of their products, most of which have only a few simple ingredients. In 2005 they won their first flavor award for their Pesto Pantesco, and have continued to be recognized for their delicious, authentic Italian products.
