A reader left a comment telling me that IKEA sells vegetarian caviar. I love IKEA for making furniture accessible to students and low-income people but what they sell in lieu of food is scary. I remember once trying one of their $1 breakfasts and a week of heartburn I experienced after that. And the way IKEA perverts the noble dish of Swedish meatballs?
If they are now doing to caviar what they did to meatballs, that’s simply criminal.

I adore Sweedish meatballs. I have heard that Ikea’s Sweedish meatballs are delicious and have always doubted that information. Now I’m glad to know that my suspicions are well founded. 🙂 ………………….. So vegetarian caviar….is that usually made form eggplant? My mother used to make eggplant “caviar” when I was growing up and I always found it delicious.
It’s supposed to be made from sea weed. If we had an IKEA close by I’d travel there to try the sea weed caviar. One needs to be ready to go in search of a story! 🙂
I just learned about finger limes, which are sometimes called “citrus caviar.” I don’t know what they taste like, but they look cool.
