Whole Black Summer Truffles (1st Choice) (Preserved in Jar)
Preserved French black summer truffles is a wonderful option when fresh truffles are not available. The black summer truffle (Tuber Aestivum) has a flesh which ranges from yellowish to grayish with white veins. Although less strongly flavoured than the black winter truffles, these truffles are regarded as a fine dish ingredient by many enthusiasts. Since the summer truffle has a delicate flavour, it shouldn’t be used in dishes that are cooked. Like good extra-virgin olive oil, the heat will destroy the flavor. Instead, shave thin slices of the truffle onto dishes to finish them off with a great aroma and taste. A little goes a long way with truffles!
