This phenomenal Siberian Ossetra caviar (acipenser baerii) is farmed in Uruguay by Black River Caviar using highly sophisticated farming equipment which almost exactly mimics the natural environment of wild Russian sturgeon. The result is a smooth, creamy, and fresh tasting caviar that rivals wild Russian caviar. The sturgeon are fed an all-natural, organic feed. Black River Caviar’s Russian Caviar Master uses the malossol, or “little salt” method, to enhance the superb flavor of the caviar. Enjoy caviar by the spoonful, or serve with with a mild base, such as lightly toasted challah bread or blinis. Since household refrigerators are usually too warm for caviar products, we suggest the following for proper storage: place a sealed bag of ice, or a frozen ice pack, on the caviar tin and place it in the coldest part of the refrigerator, usually the back; replenish the ice as it melts. If the coldest part of your refrigerator is under 36 degrees, ice is not necessary.
