What's the difference between Capers? Some just say Capers while others say Non-Pareil Capers. The Non-Pareil ones are from Italy while the ones that just Capers are from Turkey or Morocco. http://tvwbb.infopop.cc/groupee_common/emoticons/icon_confused.gif

Hi, Bryan! Merry Christmas, Happy Holidays, etc.!

I think the nonpareil capers are the smallest ones, and the size that I like to use. I'm not sure about their origin. I've had some of the larger capers and find them somewhat fibrous and with less flavor than the small capers.

There are, I believe, 5 or 6 size grades for capers, rhough one rarely sees any grade listed other than nonpareil, which are the smallest.
