A FEW WORDS ABOUT KAPPARIA
Located in a lush valley, Kapparia consists of four villages.
Morakaio, Vorina, Megalo Chorio and Tzeo.
The villages are divided by the river of Kapparia that comes from the top of the mountain, named Gerakona, and ends in the valley of Korthi where it reaches the sea.

THE PLANT KAPPARI (CAPER).
Spice coming from the bush Capparis Spinosa and mainly found around coastal areas of the Mediterranean, on rocky soils and rocks. Also known with the name Agathoti, it has impressive leaves with stripes and small white blossoms. It blooms in the summer. The blossoms live only one day and droops after. The caper we know comes from the bud of the plant which is collected prior to becoming a blossom.
It contains essential oil, which is used for healing. Apart from the buds, the plant’s root is used for aphrodisiac purposes in the form of a beverage.
Raw caper has strong flavor and it is better to avoid it. In cooking it is used as pickle caper accompanying perfectly fish, meat and salads.
