It's probably a sort of string -- perhaps something like bias tape. The OED 
has Tape: 1. a. A narrow woven strip of stout linen, cotton, silk, or other 
textile, used as a string for tying garments, and for other purposes for 
which flat strings are suited, also for measuring lines, etc.

So, yup either deep frying or pan frying with the tape on to keep the roll 

toodles, margaret
