Tuber Melanosporum, called the black truffle, Périgord truffle or French black truffle, is a species of truffle native to Southern Europe. It is one of the most expensive edible mushrooms in the world.
The fruiting bodies of the black truffle exude a scent reminiscent of undergrowth, strawberries, wet earth or dried fruit with a hint of cocoa. Their taste, which fully develops after the truffles are heated, is slightly peppery and bitter.
If stored at room temperature, the aromatic compounds dissipate, while storage at around the freezing point (0 °C) leads to an increased synthesis of these compounds.
Product life: 1 to 2 weeks, kept into a refrigerator at 37.5 F (3 C ), wrapped in paper towel.
We recommend consuming the truffles as soon as possible. In order to ensure top quality enjoyment, we recommend consuming the truffles soon after they are received
