<<< I had such a funny conversation with my mother just the other

years, she thought that capers were a kind of fish, since she usually
saw them with anchovies or lox.  They even had little tails!

Good thing she has a foodie kid.  <chuckle>

There's some talk of a caper shortage?  Should we plant caperberry
bushes and pickle our own?  >>>

For a little bit on period uses of capers.
