I love capers, their tart lemony taste.
I use them in tomato based sauces, add them to the pan when frying fish and eat them with smoked salmon and cream cheese.

What other ideas and meals have you got for me to use them in?

Hi Vanessa45, I also add them to 'spag bol', and sometimes put them in homemade mayo.

I add a handful to a coleslaw salad and fry them with lemon zest and garlic, in butter then tip over chicken.

Tapenade, Salsa Verde, Caponata.

I make a lovely cauli, tomato and capers salad based on a recipe from Hugh Fearneley-Whittingstall:

1 small cauli
300g ripe tomatoes
2 tab capers, rinsed
3 tab ev olive oil
juice of ½ lemon
salt & pepper
parsley to garnish

Cut cauli into small florets, boil 2 min until just tender. Drain well.

Remove seeds from tomatoes, chop roughly, add to cauli. Add rest of ingredients, leave at room temp at least 1 hour to develop.
