Right, I am converted!!!

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!

How about bacon on top of lox?  With capers, no less.  Oh, if only the world were so good to me.

Nothing gets worse with bacon.

David

am I allowed to add capers?

Not only allowed. According to my wife, they are a vital part of the blend.

By the way did you know that capers are Nasturtium seeds. Or at least some of them.

By the way, I will contact some of my friends in Sydney to see where they get theirs.

"Born-again bacon"

Complete and total nonsense!

The only thing bacon does to a bagel is ruin it.

@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.

@antedelivian: Since "pain" is bread in French, it seems you have punned!

This works on so many levels, because Martin's (a.k.a. MeasurementBlues) puns are so painful LOL
