Black Summer Truffle Salt Recipes
A black truffle, sometimes called a blood truffle, is a tiny, black, mushroom-like fruit that normally grows on trees in France, northern Italy, and Switzerland. These succulents are normally eaten raw. The black color of these fungi gives them their name. It is thought that the word “truffle” comes from the French word for “dried meat”. The dried meat of these fungi was called gunk and they were dried and hung on racks to dry, often in the caves, where there was fresh air all year round. Today they are high in sugar and used in many baking recipes.
A truffle has a distinct taste, one distinct from other varieties of mushrooms. Black truffles have a slight sugary flavor. The term sugary is because the product has no real butter or oil in it. No sugary ingredients in black truffle salt or any seasoning that adds any taste to it. A real black truffle salt contains no sugar, no artificial ingredients, no starch, no larding, no coloring, no salt or yeast, no coloring or starch, no alcohol, no coloring agents, none.
When you buy this type of salt you can be sure that you are buying a very good product that tastes much better than the store bought variety. There is a definite salty taste to them. When they are fresh they have a distinct fresh from the earthy soil type taste. As they dry they take on a more waxy taste. All in all black truffle salt is a very good product that is well worth the price.
For many years, truffles were solely used by the rich and famous. They were too expensive for the common person’s pocketbook, but they were very delectable and luxurious. For centuries wealthy families would use truffle salt as an expensive taste of good food that was only affordable by very few people. This is what made truffle salt so much like mushrooms – they taste better, are more nutritious, and are very healthy and very delicious.
In order to bring back the almost candy like flavor of truffle, it needs to have a very thick and sweetened layer of flavor inside of it. This is where black summer truffles come into play. By using black summer salt, you can add just the right amount of thick flavor to your homemade truffle. Add just a bit at a time to your recipe, or if you are planning on making a big batch of cookies or cakes, you can put the bulk of black truffle salt in one container and then pour the rest of your ingredients into another container.
By using truffle salt instead of regular table salt can make a long way towards healthier eating and better health overall. To take the steps further, you could also try adding a little lemon juice or other acidic fruits such as strawberries to the mixture to bring out the flavor even further. Another great idea would be to grate or mix some fresh garlic or any strong flavored herb such as basil or mint into the mixture. Adding these things can help take the flavor even further, which will be great for those who are looking for even stronger flavor.
