As pointed out in your link, true capers are the flower buds of the caper plant. But a friend of mine, or maybe my mom, years ago tried Nasturtium seeds and they were not bad. I have a lot of nasturtiums in the garden and the frosts are beginning here so when I pull them out I might try that. You can also use nasturtium leaves and flowers in salads - crisp peppery taste.
Any pointers to good Bagels in Sydney will be gratefully received!
@Antedeluvian... "I grew up in a dim outpost of the British empire in deepest darkest Africa (David may take exception) "
Well I grew up in the same part of deepest darkest Africa and I take no exception at all, in fact I wear that badge with pride. My co-workers are keen for me to take Australian citizenship because then I will have to stop asking them what they would do without Zimbabweans, every time I do something that they can't. Unlike Aubrey I am from pure British stock (I may be rubbish, but I'm BRITISH rubbish!) But I tend to emphasise my Zimbabwean heritage over my British to my Aussie colleagues.....
On the subject of Bagels I have to confess that I have never tried one, which as a closet foodie gives me some shame (pain, even... :-). I can't say I have ever seen them In Australia (can any other Aussie readers point me towards a good vendor??)
However I like them already...anything which goes with smoked salmon and cream cheese (am I allowed to add capers?) i am sure will tickle my fancy.
I've heard that bagels are one of the objects in the kitchen most likely to be the cause of a trip to the emergency room, usually the result of someone not quite awake along with a hard bagel and a dull knife, leading to a slip of the knife.
For this reason I think OSHA should require bagel slicers in all corporate kitchens. (My actual motive is that if companies are required to buy a bagel slicer, then they'll think "well, we have the slicer, so we might as well buy some bagels for the employees).
Clearly I'm not on a Paleo diet, but I've heard Paleontologists don't taste very good anyway.
