Confused about what capers are?

You'll be probably more confused when you’re offered caper berries or, in Italian, cucuncior cocunci .

When a bud flowers, you typically lose the fruit.

This doesn't happen with Cucunci.

Right after the flower buds, another fruit grows, even tastier than the little caper that originally was.

One of the best kept Sicilian culinary secrets: cucunci.

Capers and Cucunci are plentiful on the beautiful volcanic islands off the coast of Sicily.

They turn up in antipasti, in salads, with pasta, meat, fish or as snacks.
