I really enjoyed this article very much. I, too, love nasturtiums just for the lovely foliage and blooms. How wonderful to learn that they can be used in so many ways. Like many others, I was especially excited to learn that the seeds can be used to make a substitute for capers. My biggest frustration with capers has always been the fact that 1/2 or more of the bottle often goes to waste after I use the amount needed for the recipe at hand. It would be nice to have a way to make a substitute when needed.

DreamOfSpring, I agree with you about the waste of the purchased caper products. They really need to produce smaller jars! You might invest some time researching various nasturtium pod recipes and make small batches to see which suits your needs for the most caper-like flavor. I use them all the time because they taste good, not necessarily because they taste like capers, lol.
Thank you so much for reading, posting your comments, and kind words about the article!
I wish you much luck with your pods,
