Coming events - 2016

Have you ever experienced a “food moment”........ of unexpected pleasure?

Before we started our food adventure as caper producers, we often enjoyed a pasta dish - Linguini with smoked salmon, peas and vodka - which I enjoyed preparing, partly because it was so easy, but mostly because it included capers. They were only a minor ingredient, but I elevated them to a major one - by just using more!

The only available capers were imported and preserved in vinegar or brine. I found them quite addictive whereas Barry would sideline his share or move them onto my plate. It wasn’t until 2007 as we started to process our own using a “dry salt” method that we discovered a very different and eminently more enticing ingredient, right on our back doorstep!

      Picture a handful of lightly- rinsed, Kolophon capers pickled  

       in Murray River salt, sprinkled liberally over  pasta tossed in a

      creamy, garlicky sauce with diced smoked salmon, garden
        peas and a dash of vodka....

            (some moments later)

  In what can only be described as a sensory “hit” accompanied

by a seismic shift in perception, there is an explosion of flavours

- of salty, floral, and fermented mustard notes.

       We  are hooked, there and then .....

KOLOPHON capers are grown sustainably in the  RIVERLAND... clean and fresh, with real caper flavour.

Our caper patch is located 10 kms west of Berri in South Australia’s largest fruit-growing region.
