Curious, why rinse them?
I buy jarred capers at Trader Joe's that are packed in brine,
are yours packed in salt maybe?

Thanks for all the suggestions! I can see me adding them to tarter sauce since I usually make my own anyway. I can also see using them in chicken and tuna salads. I'll need to pick some up next time I'm in the store. Thanks for the links too. I haven't had the time to really peruse them well so am looking forward to that soon.

BTW Jabbur, the empty caper jars make great spice jars.

Capers are an ingredient in Tartare sauce to eat with fish.

Sometimes they are packed in vinegar. Not good, so read the label

And put it all on top of a toasted bagel. You can even use sliced Bermuda or red onion and sliced tomato if that should please you. The Marriott on Lung Gyland calls it Lox, Stock and Bagels

SLoB!

I have 24 ounces of smoked salmon I bought at Costco. I pulled out the box and stared at it. DH thinks I shouldn't open it yet, it's good until 2020 unless opened. My feeling is to get a jar of capers, some cream cheese, and some bagels. Life is too short.

Don't forget that you can portion that up and freeze the portions.
