Thread: The Tomaper

    Default The Tomaper

    I have a Turducken-inspired idea. Stuff an tomato with a big caper.

    (For those unaware, you can get capers that an inch or more in
    diameter.)

    The thought occured to me while snacking in my kitchen.

    I cored a tomato and stuffed in a caper. I found I could slice the
    thing.

    That's about as far as I have gotten experimenting with this new
    culinary discovery.

    I'm going to make myself a Capri Salad with tomapers, and a tomaper
    sandwich.

    Cherry tomapers on a toothpick, anyone?

    It's catching on.

    "Tomaper Tomato Caper" (without quotes) already gets two hits on
    Google since I posted!

    cheese and a caper.

    I bet that (without the cream cheese) might make a great stuffing for
    a Turducken.

    Those are caper berries. They are the berries from the plant. Capers
    are buds.

    That sounds MUCH better. The "big capers Tom's talking about are
    "Caper Berries" they are pickled in brine but that's about all they
    have in common. They are a fruit and full of tiny little seeds like a
    fig - but the seeds are not soft. It's kinda like biting into a very
    tough skinned green olive filled with mustard seeds. Capers are
    flower buds pickled in brine or vinegar.

    I suggest you wrap the caper with anchovies before stuffing it into the
    tomato. Seriously! I'd try it if I could get a one inch diameter caper.
    What's not to like for a tomato-caper-anchovy lover.

    Everything is acceptable in reasonable proportions
    <http://www.healthy.net/scr/article.asp?ID=2004>. Eat it if you can
    secrete it.
    I was thinking thin slicing it on a salad. Um... No I wasn't. Scarfing
    one down twice a year couldn't hurt, could it?

    Is this kind of like "smoke 'em if you have 'em?"

    Not a bit. I had to give up black olives, as I like them too much. Too much
    fat, albeit "good" monosaturated fat, and wayyy to much salt. I had already
    given up green olives years ago. I don't have high bp and don't want to get
    it.

    Last time I looked (a long time ago), Trader Joes had the caper berries.
    I think there's one not too far from you:

    http://www.traderjoes.com/static/find_a_tjs.asp

    I've never tried a caper berry, but I've read (here) that the taste is
    similar to capers. They come off the same plant.

    Well, maybe you should check their product listings first. Oops! No
    product listings on their web page.

    Anyway, I was in desperate need of some almonds covered with dark
    chocolate, so a couple of hours ago I went down there (they are 1/4 mile
    away). I got my almonds, but as I walked by the pickles I took a look
    for the caper berries. None. They are always right next to the capers,
    which looked good and at a good price (US$2.49 a jar). But no caper
    berries. If you are in the area, it's worth stopping by. I don't buy
    much there, but like the free samples.
