The Italian White Alba truffle - the winter white truffle - is celebrated around the world for its superb gastronomic qualities, particularly its aroma, reminiscent of fresh cloves of garlic mixed with creamy and rich parmesan cheese. The little pebble-sized truffles are preserved in their own juices or brine, and are ready to use. In order to help reconstitute their original flavor and aroma from being preserved in brine, chefs suggest to first lightly sauté them in a truffle butter or oil, and then use at the end of a preparation (like risottos and pastas).Preserved truffles are a nice, budget-friendly way to add visual truffle appeal to dishes. However, if you are looking to add the pungent aroma and taste of truffles to your dish, we recommend that you explore our fresh truffle selection at http://www.gourmetfoodstore.com. Jarred or canned truffles, sold by us or any other vendor, are mere shadows of their fresh truffle selves and will not, by themselves, deliver the aroma or flavor of fresh truffles. They are great to use with truffle oil – the oil will add the flavor, the preserved truffles the truffle “look”, but preserved truffles should be used only to garnish a dish, or in conjunction to truffle butter and oil during those times when fresh truffles are out of season or when the budget doesn’t allow for the real thing. Preserved truffles out of the jar or can have almost no flavor or odor.
