Nonpareille capers are the smallest of commercially-available capers-which, in turn, are the edible flower buds that grow on the caper plant. But wait … Why would you pick the tiniest, teeniest capers? Here’s a clue. ‘Nonpareille’ is French for ‘has no equal.’ As it turns out, the smaller the caper, the more delicate in texture and flavor it is. These tiny nuggets of goodness pack the acidic, salty, and briny punch you’ve come to expect (and love) from capers-but with a more subtle, delicious nuance. Truly unparalleled. You may find yourself ditching the usual capers, fair warning.
