Spanish Cuttlefish Ink - JarSimilar to squid, the cuttlefish releases an dark black ink that's used to add a dramatic jet color to dishes - especially rice and pasta. In Spain and Italy, you'll find many inky black dishes marked as Nero or Seppia. Cuttlefish ink adds a briny and distinctly salty flavor, but it's mild and won't overpower the dish. Dilute and add to a risotto, or tint fresh pasta for an incredible color. Store at room temperature but refrigerate after opening. Imported from Spain.
