What are Black Truffle Slices?
Black Summer Truffles (Tuber aestivum) are usually only available from June to August. However, our preservation process extends the life of the truffle, allowing you to enjoy the incredible taste of truffle all year. We select the highest quality truffles and shave them into 2mm slices, which are then soaked in a salt brine to enhance the flavour, before being preserved in extra virgin olive oil.
What does it taste like? The truffle is firm to the bite, followed by a rich & earthy black truffle flavour.
How should I use it? Use straight from the jar as a luxury garnish for almost anything; we recommend trying on scrambled eggs, pasta or salads.
Shelf Life: 18 Months
Recipe Suggestion – Bacon and Truffle Mac and Cheese
Step 1: Blanch macaroni in boiling water until nearly cooked through (still has a slight crunch).
Step 2: Grill bacon until golden then cut into lardons. (strips 5mm thick and the full width of the bacon)
Step 3: For the sauce. Remove skin, and half the onion put into milk with and warm the milk slowly, do not boil. 20 minutes should do.
Step 4: For the roux. Melt TruffleHunter Black Truffle Butter in pan big enough to hold at least 1 litre of sauce. Add flour and cook out for two or three minutes.
Step 5: Finish the sauce. Remove and discard the onion from the milk. Add the milk to the roux a little at a time all the while whisking.
Step 6: Once all the milk is combined, add 180g/ 6oz of the cheese, TruffleHunter Minced Black Truffle and TruffleHunter Black Truffle Mustard and cook out for 5 minutes on a very low heat.
Step 7: Combine bacon, macaroni and cheese sauce. Place in baking dish, top with slices of TruffleHunter Black Truffle and the remaining cheese and bake until golden and crisp on top.
