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
The Truffles are getting riper by the week and the marbling is now dark with a great aroma. We will be offering two tiers; whole and cuts for the rest of the season.
The cuts tier have truffles that were damaged while being foraged, or sliced because of frostbite damage. We consider a truffle in the cuts tier if it has had over 30% of its surface area sliced or
