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:
- Gently wrap the fresh truffle in absorbent paper, such as paper towel.
- Place in a dry, sealed container like tupperware or a glass jar.
- Keep the container in the crisper compartment of your refrigerator avoiding the cooler areas of the fridge.
- 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:
- 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.
- 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.
