A Caper (Capparis spinosa) is a flower bud of the caper shrub from the Mediterranean pickled salted and used as a seasoning or garnish.

Capers are a common ingredient in Mediterranean cuisine.

The grown fruit of the caper shrub is also available, prepared similarly to the buds, as caper berries. FREE Recipes
