thanks! I were so happy , I could not believe it !
What type of flavor does the ink have?
it taste like the squid(kind of, but not exactly), and is salty, so you have to use less salt on the recipes.
Where do you get your ink? Fresh?
no, I have take 2 tiny bag from the supermarket, of 16 grams. in Italy they sell it everywhere.
