Caper

This shrub with arching stems grows to three feet tall. It produces an abundance of small flower buds on first-year branches from May to October that are harvested before they open, and brined using salt and herbs. Each brined bud has a peppery, mustard flavor and can be used for sauces, meat dishes or pastas. If left unpicked these buds form large, scented, pinkish-white flowers with long lavender-colored stamens. If left to flower, the stamen of the flowers will develop into caper berries which can be harvested and preserved as well.
