Many of us have nasturtiums growing once a year wild in our gardens!
You can eat most of this plant and once it starts to die it develops seeds which you can use to make a type of caper! Often called the "poor man's caper", they are easy to make.
This was my first attempt at these, as I normally do not use the seeds, and I made two jars full. They have a slightly different taste to capers and can be added to salads and other meals.
This recipe is for one jar, and as I had heaps more seeds, I made another, so you would need to double ingredients for two jars.
: 20 minutes plus standing time
: 10 minutes
: 1 jar
About ½ cup nasturtium seeds - make sure they are green and not brown
2 tsp salt
2 cups water
2 tsp sugar
¾ cup white vinegar or apple cider vinegar
Chili flakes - optional
Cumin - optional
