    Thumbs up salmon caviar

    salmon roe is tasty!
    chum is best, king is next. i don't care for coho roe, but silver is okay.
    haven't tried pink, but it is a nice size.

    first you need to have fully developed roe.
    gently push the roe through 1/4 or 3/8 wire mesh to separate the eggs.
    prepare a 100% brine, and put the eggs in it for a BRIEF time, 30-60 seconds.
    you want the roe to just begin to lose it's translucency. drain in a stainless or plastic colander over night in the fridge and pack in 1/2 pt canning jars.
    this will keep in the fridge for weeks, and can be frozen.

    my mother loves 'em...she is the only reason I keep the eggs...I'll bring 'em home and she'll give them a rinse in water then into the soy sauce and then right down the hatch...
