Black Truffle Salt, or Trudy as it is known in France, is a highly prized herb that has been used by the ancients for ages as a medicine for a variety of ailments. A truffle (or a trudy) is actually the fruiting bodies of underground ascomycete fungi, primarily one of the numerous species of Tuber. Other genera of mushrooms that make up the truffle family include Geopora, Peziza, Trillium, Leucangium, and more than a hundred other fungi.
Truffles come in several different shapes, sizes, and colors but they all have the same medicinal benefits. These benefits are derived from the fact that these mushrooms contain a special type of substance called thymol. This substance occurs naturally in nature, however, as a natural ingredient, it is removed from truffles before they are harvested. The removal of this substance is necessary as the mushroom must contain a sufficient amount of thymol before it can grow and be used for medicinal purposes. A Truffle is the only way that the mushroom is harvested and the process begins with a mold known as cheddar-like.
Once the mushroom has been picked and has had its cap removed a process called bruise-drying takes place. This procedure involves adding water to the mushroom, which causes it to expand, thus breaking up the cap and allowing air to escape into the mushroom chamber.
Once the mushroom has been broken, it is then dried under a light which will help to remove any excess moisture in the mushroom. The outer covering of the mushroom is removed by scraping and then the fungus is ground into a fine powder. This powder is then mixed with olive oil, salt, and spices.
The black truffle sea salt is then added to the mixture in order to give it a salty and pungent taste. To prepare the black truffles the mixture is left to ferment in a barrel for up to four weeks. After the fermentation process has been completed, it is left to cool on a wire rack, at which time it is sealed and stored for safekeeping. This process ensures that the herbs and the salt do not become oxidized.
Black Truffles are then prepared by taking the mixture to boil, resulting in a very strong liquor, which is used in many recipes. These salts are then smoked for a final time. Smoking allows the herbs to take on a smokey flavor and this smoke also seals them away from oxygen.
This salt is used in hundreds of cooking and baking recipes as well as being added to many gourmet cocktails. It can also be added to food by some as a finishing touch to ice cream and coffee to add an extra flavor.
Black Truffles are considered by many to be the finest salt available and they are available in different sizes, each with its own unique flavor. They are used in all kinds of cooking including desserts, salads, soups, hot dogs, pies, and even candy bars and candies.
The black truffle salt is also a great addition to your next party because it can be used as a garnish to bring the whole event together. They can also be used to decorate your home if you decide to make some black truffles into centerpieces.
While using black truffle salt, it is important to note that you should not eat the entire piece of the mushroom at once. Instead, it should be eaten as a part of a meal. This way it is kept fresh for hours on end and this makes it ideal for serving to guests who do not like the taste of mushrooms.
If you are looking to store your truffles away after you are done with using them, it is recommended to use a plastic freezer bag instead of paper bags. This allows the truffles to dry out more evenly and prevents them from absorbing moisture.
Since the truffles are so expensive they are sometimes used in some weddings where there will be a large amount of food to be served. If you choose to use this method of packaging, it is suggested to cover the truffles with some type of sealant to keep them sealed. If they are not wrapped, it is often wise to put them into a large zip bag to keep them out of direct sunlight.
