PLEASE NOTE: Whole Truffles will often have a little nick , we call this a "canifer". This is a man-made nick done to check the ripeness of the flesh, by the forager. The forager will make a little cut with a special knife called a "canife”, hence the term "canifer".
FRESH BLACK WINTER TRUFFLES
Good morning truffle fans,
This week will mark the end of the European Black Winter Truffle season, but we are ending the season on a high. High-quality, that is. The small number of truffles we imported this week are firm, marbled to perfection, and loaded with intoxicating aromas. Because supply has decreased, prices are up slightly this week. Be sure to order your truffles as soon as possible as we are likely to run out this week.
In the meantime, as we have mentioned in previous weeks, we have some availability of frozen black winter truffles. The button below links to our Frozen Winter Truffle guide, which is a great resource for demonstrating how to use frozen black winter truffles in place of fresh to extend your best dishes throughout the year.
Harvested from: November - March
Profile: Dark, rough exterior, but not as coarse as Black Summer truffles.
Flesh begins as brown and ages to black with white marbling.
Aroma: Strong aroma resembling cocoa, licorice, hazelnuts, and mint.
