A-grade truffles are a tad smaller than those but are still big enough to wow you. They may have minor surface imperfections.

      Knowing: What is Needed for black truffles

      Truffles have been part of human cuisine since ancient times, but only re-emerged during the Renaissance. By the end of the 19th century, they had become the celebrated delicacy we know today. Two thirds of the world's Périgord black truffles are produced in France, with Vaucluse being the leading producer. A truffle is an underground fungus that belongs to the ascomycete family. It forms a symbiotic relationship with the tree it grows near, with both organisms benefiting from the interaction. The truffle absorbs the sugars from the tree, while the fungus helps the tree absorb mineral salts and water from the soil. Certain tree species are best suited for truffle growth, such as holm oaks, pubescent oaks, hazels, lindens, and sweet chestnuts. The ideal growing conditions are chalky, shallow, and well-drained soils.

      Remarkable, with hints of undergrowth and dried mushroom. Its fragrance is unparalleled.


      Nutritional benefits

      Truffles, when used as a condiment, provide negligible nutritional value, but they do possess significant amounts of vitamins B2, B3, B5, D, and K.

      How to use black truffles?

            The scent of truffle is fleeting, so it must be kept sealed in the refrigerator. A sheet of kitchen towel on top can help protect it from moisture. Alternatively, storing your truffle in uncooked rice is an ideal way to preserve both the humidity and aroma. Plus, the rice will take on the truffle's fragrance and make a wonderful side dish. Lastly, freezing it can extend its shelf life up to 12 months.

            Before use, gently scrub a fresh truffle. Slice it thinly with a mandolin or crush it with a fork to unlock its flavors. Enjoy it raw or cooked. When using canned truffles, only use them in hot dishes.

            Enjoy truffles in one of the simplest ways: on buttered bread, in thin slices, with a sprinkle of fleur de sel.
