Selezione Whole Black Truffles
12 jars (1.4oz each)
Black summer truffles, truffle juice, salt.
Preserved Italian black truffles can be grated similarly to fresh truffles. Many chefs use them to add truffle slices to their dishes for visual effect.
Though they’re certainly more affordable than fresh truffles, most chefs feel that jarred truffles don’t impart much flavor. They’re usually used to add the appearance of truffles to a dish in combination with intensely flavored truffle oil or truffle salt to give the food truffle flavor and aroma.
If you're looking for an out of season truffle option that provides good flavor, a far better alternative would be frozen truffles.
Once opened, jarred truffles should be stored in your refrigerator.
Up to two years unopened, up to two weeks once opened.
RECIPES & TIPS
Black Summer truffles can be used in a variety of ways and in many kinds of dishes from pasta and risotto to egg dishes or even potato gratin. Use your imagination!
Because preserved truffles tend to be extremely mild in flavor, they are often used only for appearance's stake and paired with other truffle products like truffle oils and truffle salts to amp up the dish's overall truffle flavor.
