Frozen Oregon Black Truffles
Availablity: In Stock
1 lb. bag
Oregon black truffles have a pungent, ‘earthy-pineapple’ aroma and a strong flavor. Wild-foraged in Oregon, they are most commonly found amongst the roots of Douglas fir trees that are twelve or more years old. Nestled 6-12 inches beneath the layer of needles that collects under each tree, the truffles enjoy a symbiotic relationship with their trees and (if harvested carefully) reappear in the same place year after year. Our expert foragers return to the same secret patches every year to harvest these wild delicacies.
These frozen wild truffles have been hand-foraged in Oregon during the fall white truffle season and expertly frozen to preserve as much of their fresh flavor and aroma as possible. They’re available year round to satisfy truffle cravings whenever they strike.

RECIPES & TIPS
For best quality, these Oregon black truffles should be carefully grated while still frozen. Use them as a finishing ingredient on just-cooked dishes, and the heat rising from the hot food will thaw them and release their full flavor. Use them as a final touch on your favorite risotto, mashed potatoes, pasta, cheese pizza or even scrambled eggs.
