Fresh Oregon Black Truffles (Leucangium carthusianum) 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.
Store fresh truffles in the refrigerator submerged in a container of uncooked rice or wrapped loosely in paper towels. Fresh truffles are best when used within a week or less after they arrive.
