Fresh Black Summer Truffles
Black Summer Truffles Tuber Aestivum
Summer truffles are now known and appreciated all over the the world. Picking season goes from May to September.
Fresh Black Summer Truffles (Tuber Aestivum Vitt) have a sweet, almost chocolaty flavor and a subtle aroma that is perfect for those light spring and summer dishes.
Suggestion: Although Fresh Black Summer Truffles (tuber aestivum vitt) are not as tasty as the Winter Black Truffles or even less than Fresh White Truffles, they can be quite splendid sliced into sauces, over pasta or into omelets or salad. Occasionally Fresh Black Summer Truffles can be “helped” by a good truffles’ oil or dry porcini that have been soaked in little lukewarm water and squeezed almost dry.
We usually recommend a serving size of 5-7 grams of fresh truffle per dish per person (approx. 4-5 servings per ounce).
Storing: Keep refrigerated at under 6 C/ 40F for up to a week wrapped in a paper bag. We recommend consuming the truffles soon after they are received.
