Fresh Black Summer Truffles (50gr, 100gr, 200gr, 300gr) End of Season

* ”End of season”

Fresh Italian Black Summer Truffles (Tuber Aestivum Vitt) are typically sold fresh for eating and processing into high-quality preserved truffle products such as butters, oils, salts, and honey. Summer Truffles are lighter and less potent (and less expensive) compared to their winter cousins. Fresh Italian Black Summer Truffles have a noticeably sweet, subtle chocolate and garlic flavor with a delicately rich peaty/woodsy aroma and earthy hazelnut undertones – textbook for light spring and summer dishes. 

Black Summer Truffles boast a remarkable nutrient profile; truffles are high in a number of important vitamins and minerals including vitamin C, phosphorus, sodium, calcium, magnesium, manganese and iron. Truffles are high in protein, fiber, and carbohydrates- which makes them excellent for a vegetarian diet. They contain both saturated and unsaturated fatty acids. 

Fresh Italian Black Summer Truffles are recurrently used in many cooked dishes and sauces, their indefinable flavor is best enjoyable when accompanying freshly shaved directly atop canapés & hor d’oeuvres. Fresh Italian Black Summer Truffles are an excellent addition to scrambled eggs and omelets, added to soufflés, pasta dishes and risotto- just to name a few.

Description

Storing Fresh Truffles

Fresh truffle is truly one of life’s greatest pleasures. To savour your fresh truffle for up to 14 days we suggest:

  1. Gently wrap the fresh truffle in absorbent paper, such as paper towel.
  2. Place in a dry, sealed container like tupperware or a glass jar.
  3. Keep the container in the crisper compartment of your refrigerator avoiding the cooler areas of the fridge.
  4. Don’t be afraid to use the truffle! (It’s great for breakfast, lunch, dinner and snacks.)

Note: Moisture is the truffle’s worst enemy – so we suggest changing your paper towel regularly.

Storing Fresh Truffles with Eggs

We love to store our fresh truffles with fresh eggs (any eggs!) in a large sealable jar for 2-3 days which infuses the yolk with the truffle aroma – wonderful when scrambled.

Storing Fresh Truffles with Rice

A secret chef tip is to store your fresh truffles in a large sealable jar for 2-3 days with arborio rice. The truffle aroma and flavour infused through the rice and makes a magnificent base for truffle risotto.

Freezing Fresh Truffles

Truffles can be kept frozen for up to 3 months though some aroma will be lost. There are two ways this can be achieved:

  1. Wrap truffles individually in foil and place into a ziplock freezer bag, squeeze as much air out as possible before sealing the bag, then freeze.
  2. Alternatively, place each truffle in a sealable container, cover with oil or duck fat to create an air barrier, then freeze.

Removing Mould from Truffles

Truffles lose moisture (weight) and aroma continually. If they grow a little mold, brush it off under running cold water and dry the truffle well before placing it in the fridge.
