Black Winter Truffle
My scientific name: Tuber Melanosporum Vitt.
I am a wild mushroom. Unlike other mushrooms I grow underground.
What they say about me: " It has a spherical shape and is rather homogenous and round with polygonal warts apex . The blackish brown color of the surface takes on shades of rust rub. The interior is crisscrossed by light veins and subtle, highly branched. The meat or glebe is clear, its perfume is intense, aromatic and fruity. The size can reach and even exceed that of a large apple".
I love to be shaved thinly over a creamy pasta or risotto. I adore scrambled eggs and decadent buttered steaks.
Upon arrival: Be aware that it is typical for your truffles to have some condensation upon arrival. This happens because the truffle releases moisture, which gets captured in the paper wrapping. This moisture actually helps to maintain the truffle's freshness and stops it from becoming dry during shipping. After you receive your truffles, we advise consuming them soon after their arrival.
Conservation methods: Fresh Truffles are best eaten as soon as possible. When you receive your truffles, we suggest you immediately wrap them individually in kitchen paper and place in an airtight glass jar in the refrigerator until use. Please don’t keep them for more than one week!
