To make this classic Italian recipe, brown thin pieces of chicken in a skillet, deglaze the pan with lemon juice, wine and capers, and serve over pasta. It's easy enough for weeknight family fare, but special enough for company. Recipe:Chicken Piccata with Capers

Capers are the unopened buds of the caper bush that are pickled and often used as a seasoning or garnish. A caperberry is the fruit of the caper bush; it is generally found with the stem on and, like the caper, is pickled. Caperberries tend to be starchier and less piquant than capers, and are often served with cocktails the way you might serve olives.
