Unopened containers of caviar will typically last 4-6 weeks. Once a container of caviar is opened, it should be consumed within 5 days. Caviar should be stored at a temperature of 28-34°F. If caviar is opened and unfinished, plastic wrap should be gently placed over the top of the product before the lid is placed back on the container. It is not recommended to freeze sturgeon caviar.
Take the caviar out of the refrigerator about 15 minutes before serving to let it adjust to room temperature. Caviar should be served on a surface of shaved ice, preferably in a glass container, although silver and crystal can also be used. Serve caviar with mother of pearl spoons and dish-ware rather than with metal utensils. If you use metal utensils, it may actually alter the flavor of caviar and result in a metallic taste. Serving it on mother of pearl dish-ware is a sure way to enhance the flavor and impress your guests. Ask about our mother of pearl product line.
