Questions often arise as to how to store caviar in household refrigerators once customers receive their package.
At Caviar Express, we store most of our caviar varieties at around 26 degrees (F), as this is the ideal temperature just above freezing. As a result of the salinity levels and natural oils found in caviar, the freezing point of caviar is lower than that of water, 32 degrees (F).
Monitor and replace the ice pack from time-to-time as it begins to slowly thaw out. Be sure to not place an ice pack that is overly heavy upon the caviar lid as this will press down upon the roe inside and cause the caviar eggs to burst. In the alternative, you can place the ice packs tightly along the side of the caviar tin.
Using this process will lower the holding point of the caviar to temperatures approaching our 26 degree (F) ideal storage temperature. Such a method will insure that the caviar remains fresh from 2 to 3 weeks time.
But in the end, it is always best to enjoy your caviar as soon as possible, as the ideal way to store caviar is in the mouths and stomachs of those lucky enough to indulge.
