P.G.I. Pantelleria Small Capers in Sea Salt

Be the first to review this product

The capers from Pantelleria are considered “the perfect size”: not the pebble-like “nonpareils” and not the larger Spanish “gruesas”. La Nicchia capers are also labeled IGP, or Protected Geographic Indication, for the discovery of a protein compound they contain that comes from the lava-rich soil of Pantelleria.
Country Italy
Notes Like La Nicchia, capers are best when preserved in salt and not in vinegar or brine, which can overwhelm the caper flavour and create a mushy texture. Simply rinse or soak capers to remove salt.
Ideal to garnish fish and red or white meat dishes.
Net Weight 90 gr
Ingredients Capers from Pantelleria PGI 80%, sea salt

The historical roots of La Nicchia go way back in time and place. They are deeply entrenched in the soil of a remote Sicilian Island, isolated from the world... Pantelleria. “La Nicchia”, literally ‘The Niche’, symbolizes the value of an area by way of an image and a name that call to mind something to be preserved with care and dedication.

As Gabriele Lasagni of La Nicchia says, there are four main reasons Pantelleria capers are the best: 1. the island’s volcanic soil give the capers their particular taste; 2. the temperature of the island alternates between hot days and cool nights giving the capers their strong fragrance; 3. there is a rich tradition of growing and picking capers on Pantelleria; 4. and last but not least, the particular caper variety, which grows only on Pantelleria (the cultivar spinosa nocellara), is very special and rare.
