An answer to a question asked awhile ago

Most people have tasted capers, but few have seen them growing or knowwhat they are. These tiny, pungent spheres are actually the pickled flower buds of an attractive shrub (Capparis spinosa) that is common in the Mediterranean region but oddly rare in this country.
