Oregon White Truffles (Tuber gibbosum and oregonense) are rather different from European White truffles. Both are members of the same scientific genus, tuber, but after that, the similarity ends. Oregon White truffles are often said to have aromas of butter and fresh-roasted hazelnuts with fruity, herbal notes - and maybe a little bit of garlic.
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.
