BLACKTRUFFLES AT A GLANCE

Truffle black and white, are a fungus that grow underground on roots of Oaks, Hazel Trees as well as some other types of trees. They are amongst the most expensive and appreciated delicacies and are also called Black Diamonds.

They are difficult grow, hard to find in the wild, in decline because of climate changes and habitat loss.

But Black winter truffles have now been successfully planted and produced in Australia, New Zealand and Chile, offering black winter truffles in the middle of summer for us! We have started planting inoculated trees in the US, in North Carolina, Northern California and Oregon. If the soil, climate are right we should have some American Black winter truffles in the next couple of years as it takes about 7 years to start producing.

Making A Difference

Each Season is Different

Truffle varies its characteristics and quality based on the season. For black truffle, it is well known that the winter truffle, also called “Tuber melanosporum” or “Périgord truffle,” has the most potent aroma and flavor. You can find winter truffle roughly through December to March.

Other than the winter truffle, there are autumn truffle(Burgundy truffle or Tuber uncinatum, harvested through October to December) and summer truffle(Tuber aestivum, harvested from May to August) kind, both which are enough to enjoy the flavor of truffle.   

How to store truffle

 

Keep it Dry

Moisture is the most fact that damages the truffle, so keeping it in the refrigerator is must. To help to maintain a dry condition, wrapping in absorbent paper or cotton cloth and place in a glass jar. One of the easiest methods stores the truffle in rice, which is decent way; however, the rice will draw the moisture out of the truffle and shorten the life of truffle at the end. Therefore, purchasing a specific container made only for storing truffles.
