The most succulent, mouth-watering flavor of all truffles defines Black Truffle. Made of a generous heaving of Italian black truffle salt and the finest Pacific Ocean blue truffle, this salty delight elevates plain dishes to gastronomically spectacular masterpieces. With its smooth texture, nutty undertones, and melt-in-your-mouth flavor, nothing can compare to the velvety, creamy taste of Truffles. However, its popularity is not exclusive to fine dining. It goes down well with any casual meal or special occasion.
While many salts have come on the market since Truffles' ascendancy to worldwide fame, no other product has been as well received by consumers worldwide. It's a smooth, salty confection that is melt-in-your-mouth perfection. Many people use it to salt their vegetables, and even use it as an additive to their coffee. One of the reasons it has become so popular is it's being one of the most delectable combinations in the world of salt.
There are two kinds of salt you can use for this combination. The first kind is regular table salt. While it has a similar flavor, it lacks the intensity of Truffles' power. Regular table salt does very little to enhance the flavor of foods, whereas Truffles provides a rich flavor that only a high-quality product can provide. Since regular salt is very common, buying some extra can be a good idea if you're going to use this seasoning a lot. You can sprinkle it on your salad, on top of the meat, or even on hot dogs.
A better alternative is to buy Truffles online and make your own blend. Of course, if you have ever made your own black truffle sea salt blend, then you know how easy it is. All you need is a high-quality grade crystal clear jar, a teaspoon of sugar, a pinch of coarse kosher salt, and approximately two tablespoons of fresh or dried fruit. Add your food and let it sit for a few minutes to allow the flavors to meld together. If you're using regular salt for your blend, just combine two teaspoons of regular salt with four tablespoons of sugar and a half teaspoon of kosher salt to make a smooth, creamy blend.
There is something about truffle which makes it stand out from other fancy salts. The texture and the rich aroma remind us of chocolate, but without the calories. In fact, a quarter pound of black truffle contains about thirty calories, far fewer than many popular snacks. A long way from "sugar nuggets" or "candy corn".
If you're not in the mood for making your own, you can always pick up a bottle of Truffles in many places. Look for a good grocery store, particularly one that specializes in gourmet foods. If you want to go the extra mile, drive a few hours to a co-op and buy your truffles there. The farmers there won't be so stressed if you come back and buy some, they'll be happy to make sure you enjoy some delicious truffles! The co-op will also make sure the truffles you buy are organic and free from chemicals.
Another great way to enjoy truffles is in the form of sprinkles. This is a very easy recipe. You just mix together three-fourths of a cup of dry milk, a quarter cup of white wine, a quarter cup of black truffle salt, and a two-thirds cup of baby food or yogurt. Use a pastry bag or a food processor to grind the dry milk, wine, and salt until it's a powder. Next, sprinkle on the yogurt and food processor mixture and stir until well blended.
Sprinkle some grated parmesan on top and bake the pasta. When done, sprinkle a little more cheese over top and pop into the oven. In less than an hour, you will have a delectable pasta dish with a wonderful mushroom flavor. No cooking skills are required and the best thing about this dish is that it only takes a few minutes!
