Proper storage techniques for maintaining the freshness and quality of caviar.
So you just received your Premium Top 5% of Dorasti caviar, but being the planner that you are, you bought it early to ensure your tin of caviar is there for your special celebration. But now you ask yourself, how do you store it to keep it the freshest way possible? The key to keeping your caviar fresh and flavorful is all about temperature, humidity, and light. Here's a quick guide to help you store your caviar like a pro.
First things first, let's talk about temperature. Caviar should be stored at a chilly 28-34 degrees Fahrenheit to keep it fresh and delicious. This is because caviar is a perishable product and can quickly spoil if not stored at the correct temperature. So, make sure to keep your caviar in the refrigerator. (Never store in the freezer.)
Next up, humidity. Caviar should be stored at a humidity level of around 70%. The reason is that caviar is made up of eggs, and if the humidity is too low, the eggs can dry out and lose their texture. On the other hand, if the humidity is too high, the caviar can become too wet and spoil. It is best to store it in the humidity-controlled section of your refrigerator for the optimum experience.
Light is also an important factor when it comes to storing caviar. Caviar should be stored in a dark, cool part of the refrigerator to protect it from light and heat. This will help to preserve its color and flavor. Please keep it away from dairy products. Cheese, Milk, or any type of dairy product can sometimes change the flavor of caviar. It is best to store it away from dairy products for the best integrity of the caviar.
When serving your caviar, take it out of the refrigerator about 30 minutes before serving. This technique will allow the caviar to come to room temperature and bring out its full flavor. Caviar should be served inside the tin and on a bed of crushed ice or a plate chilled in the refrigerator.
Lastly, once the caviar has been opened, we recommend consuming it in the same sitting. If there are any leftovers, you can reseal the tin and put it inside a ziplock bag or, even better, a pressure vacuum seal bag if available and refrigerate it. But we highly recommend consuming within 24 hours of doing so to keep the integrity of the caviar.
