CAVIARE (ickari) is made in Russia from the roe of sturgeons, belugas, and many other fish. The roe is separated from the skin which encloses it, salted, and, after eight days, pepper and finely minced onions are added. It is then dried, and serves as a relisher with toasted bread or bread and butter. The best caviare is tliat from the Crimea. From Kerch and Jenikale, in that province, 1500 barrels are au- nually exported to Moldavia and the countries on the Danube.
