Don’t judge a book by its cover, or in this case, a truffle by its skin. Sometimes, nature delivers great gems that are hidden by outside imperfections, like these fresh winter black truffles from Italy (tuber Melanosporum) with a “cracked” exterior. They might not be pretty on the outside, but inside, they have the same earthy flavor and intoxicating aroma.
These ugly duckling truffles are not perhaps what you would want to shave tableside but are perfect to grate or slice thinly over a dish, to toss into sauces or stuff into heritage chicken, or perhaps to prepare your own preserved truffles, truffle oil or truffle butter. At a super competitive price, you can afford to experiment!
These truffles are available in 2, 4, 8 and 16 oz. quantities, each truffle weighing less than 0.7 oz. (20 grams).
Instructions for use and storage: Don't cook for long periods of time or over excessive heat. Shave over dishes at the end of the preparation or when plating. The heat from your dish will bring out the aroma and flavor of the truffle. Store in the refrigerator wrapped in a paper towel.
