Fresh Black Truffles (Leucangium carthusianum) from Oregon look somewhat similar in appearance to Black Summer Truffles from Europe, but the resemblance ends there. Chefs and adventurous cooks across the country prize Oregon Black Truffles as a uniquely American delicacy, but one that is just as delicious and intriguing as their better-known (and much pricier) European cousins.
Oregon black truffles have a pronounced pungent, fruity-musky aroma and a strong flavor. While fresh Oregon black truffles don't have quite the same intensity as fresh European truffles, they are far less expensive and offer their own uniquely distinctive truffle flavor.
Fresh Truffles are shipped packed in rice which will become infused with truffle flavor and aroma. We recommend using it in your favorite risotto recipe.
Store fresh truffles in the refrigerator in the rice in which they were shipped. Fresh truffles are best used within approximately one week after they arrive.
