Hi Italo,I was fortunate yesterday to get some loose brown roe from a fellow fisherman. He recommended that I use Borax too cure them. I’ve always used salt with limited success. Maybe its my method that’s not right! Should I lay the eggs on a cookie sheet and spread Borax on them and then leave them in the fridge for a few hours then take them out to use of freeze? Do you have a way to make this process quick and effective? Thanksp.s. love your shows and you-tube videos

Thank you for your kind words. Powdered Borax is my favorite loose or skeened salmon/trout egg cure. I make sure the eggs are not too wet and I lay them out on a newspaper.


I sprinkle enough Borax on them so that I can mix them gently with my hands and ensure they are covered in Borax. Once they are covered, I try and get any excess Borax off and gently wrap the eggs in the damp newspaper. I place the wrapped eggs in a ZipLock bag and keep them in the fridge. When I need to tie eggs, I just take the bag out, tie what I need and place the rest of them back in the fridge…God bless you, Italo
