The squid releases a 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. Squid ink adds a briny and distinctly salty flavor, but it's mild and won't overpower the dish. Dilute and add to a rice, or tint fresh pasta for an incredible color.
Store at room temperature but refrigerate after opening, or you can also freeze it, it will not crystalize and you can portion from the jar directly.
