Organic Cucunci di Salina’ are caper berries harvested in Salina, Slow Food presidium. They are well-known for their old and characteristic taste.
Ideal for happy hours and rich salads, ‘Cucunci di Salina’ can amaze also the most refined gourmets. 

Cucunci’ is the caper berry, a perennial plant of tropical origin. It is very common in Sicily where – thanks to the climate and soil features of the Island – it has been acclimatized perfectly becoming a typical element of the local landscape. The caper brush grows spontaneously in the Aeolian Islands (especially Salina) thanks to calcareous soils and the sun. The harvest takes place from the end of May to the end of August, during the first hours of the day, when temperatures are mild. In this way it is possible to preserve caper aromatic nature. After harvesting, capers are spread on jute canvas in a cool place.   Once fully ripened, capers are placed inside old barrels (called ‘tinedde’ in Sicilian) and salted.  After 4-5 days capers are moved from a barrel to another since salt and heat could damage these fruits. After a month capers are preserved in glass jars without any other added ingredient.

Organic Cucunci di Salina’ are a very tasty fruit, a true delicacy for gourmets.
