About Organic Black Summer Truffles

Fresh black summer truffles (Tuber aestivum) are in season from late-May through September. Not as pungent as the winter truffle (Tuber melanosporum), they still have a lot of flavour with a much smaller price tag.

Because the summer truffle has a more delicate flavour, it shouldn't be used in dishes that are cooked. Like good extra-virgin olive oil, the heat will destroy the flavour. Instead, shave thin slices of the truffle onto dishes to finish them. A little goes a long way!

Suggested uses: toss with pasta; stir into a finished risotto dish; mix with olive oil to top bruschetta; fold into mashed potatoes; add to a butter sauce or shave over scrambled eggs or an omelette. Black Summer Truffles have a delicate flavour and aroma, with hints of earthiness, hazelnuts, chocolate, and vanilla. The flavour develops quickly as the season progresses. These truffles are very underrated, by early August when fully mature, they are quite pungent with strong flavour. The exterior of Black Summer Truffles ranges from a light to dark brown colour. The outside always demonstrates clearly defined large wart-like bumps in a polygon form.

Customer reviews

Truffles are mushrooms with a unique and very sought after flavour and aroma. They are a great addition to turn a variety of foods (risotto, mashed potatoes, omelettes, hollandaise sauce...) into a fancy gourmet dish. It is best not to overcook them to preserve the flavours, but fatty foods like oil, butter and cream will help carry their flavour.
