    There was just a reply about capers and I would really like to know what they taste like and who likes them.

    I love them! They are a little salty and sour, and add a nice burst of flavour to a dish (but I love to eat them straight from the jar!)
    A great recipe for them is (recipe #20460) by Tish Taylor.

    I like capers in lemon butter over fish. They are crunchy and salty, and have a distinct flavor that's hard to describe. Pretty good stuff.

    I've never tried them either, but it sounds like they would taste similar to a green olive. Could chopped green olives be used as a comparable substitute?

    Hi Mary,
    I often think if people like olives they will like capers but the flavour and texture is still different. They are sharper even than olives.

    I know this is an old topic, but I've always thought capers to have a taste similar to green olives, but sharper. I love them personally. I like to use them is easy pasta dishes like angel hair, artichoke hearts, and some capers along with garlic and olive oil. I like them for the saltiness they lend to dishes.

    I love capers, although I haven't come across a lot of recipes that use one.

    Here's one of my favourite dishes involving capers.

    They are very, very sour - much more so than a pickle. And they are very salty too - but they add great flavor to certain dishes, especially pasta sauce.

    There are so many recipes that you can use capers in and I agree they are quite distinctive so no, chopped green olives just won't do. I love scrambled eggs,together with a bagel with lox, creamcheese chopped onion and capers - A million dollar Brunch
    When I was still workong and always rushed for time (sound familiar) I made a sauce for fish with a can of cream of celery soup, capers, a good dollop of sherry and my guests begged for the recipe - I would not give it to them they were not the canned soup sauce type of group - try it it is so easy I served it over sauted filet of sole

    Hi Jan S -

    LOL I eat capers right out of the jar also. LOL I thought I was the ONLY person in the world to do that. Now I know there are two of us, ha, ha, ha.

    They make an excellent substitute for plutonium in nuclear warheads. Or leave a jar of them open in your clothes closet, if you like shirts that smell of cat vomit.

    Capers are really different in taste as opposed to Olives, I have a receipe that we Italians make call (Stampde) or better know as Stompretto. Very Simple:

    The closest way I can describe the taste of a caper is to compare it with French cornichons pickles. They sour and spicy. *^-^*
