The so-called “gold of Salina”, the caper, grows everywhere in the Aeolian Islands, especially in Salina. There are many producers that will host you in their houses and let you participate into the process of picking if the period is right, and assist in its preparations. Capers here made a culture, with lots of uses in the local cuisine and a big light spot in the international exports of the Islands. Being one of the most popular products of the land here, it’s used alone to enrich your dishes, or in sauces and preserves that have unique tastes and characteristics. After this tour you will see the caper under a completely different light.
