Queso Relleno de Alcaparrones

Prep Time: 35 min.[PT35M]

Cook Time: 0 min.[PT0M]


1 jar caperberries
Mahón or other soft cheese
Juice of 1 lemon
Sherry vinegar


Starting at the base of the stem on one side, use a sharp knife to slit open the caperberry around the circumference to the base of the stem on the other side, leaving the stem intact. With a very small spoon, carefully remove seeds and ribs. Form chilled Boursin cheese or other soft cheese into balls just to fit and insert, pressing shell of caperberry gently against cheese to hold. Sprinkle with a little vinegar. Season with salt and pepper to taste.
