A Simple Hack to Remove and Drain Capers
Brined capers are a pain to remove and measure—the jar opening is just too narrow for a spoon to fit inside. Get capers out of the jar without dumping out all of their brining liquid with this simple trick!
For easy caper removal, use your basic vegetable peeler. Simply insert the peeler into the jar. The capers come out on the peeling blade while the brine drains out the slit.
Here's another solution—a melon baller! It’s small enough for the opening, and the hole in the bottom of the melon baller will allow the brine to drain away.
