For under $10 these decoratively-packaged jars of homemade Chiktay is the perfect present for the foodie in your life. The herring Chiktay and morue Chiktay, both are made with rich spices and ingredients that add a burst of flavor to any meal. My personal favorite…adding to hearty bowl of spaghetti!
