Astro Biz: Star capers

Star capersMany businesses, products, and places have names rooted in space and astronomy. We’re featuring one every Tuesday on Seattle Astronomy.

This week’s Astro Biz is capers from Star Fine Foods. According to its website, Star traces its roots back to the late 19th century in San Francisco, where it started out as an olive oil importer. Over the years it added balsamic and wine vinegars, olives, peppers, capers, and other specialty items to its list of products. The site says that Star is the number-one selling brand of olive oil, wine vinegar and Spanish green olives in retail grocery stores in the Western United States.

We featured Star capers this week because it’s been a while since we shot this photo, and the jar is about empty! Time to get more capers!
