It’s important to look after your truffle and store it correctly. To note, truffle loses weight and aroma in the first few days – this is to be expected.
1. Wrap your truffle
Wrap in paper towel, pop it in a glass or plastic container (with the lid on) and put it in the fridge (4-6 degrees).
2. Keep your truffle dry
Check your truffle every day or so. If you notice moisture or condensation in the jar, wipe it out, change the paper towel and restore. Keep your truffle dry.
3. Use sooner than later
For maximum flavour, your truffle is best used within a week.
4. Do not freeze your truffle.
Although you can snap freeze truffle, the quality and integrity of the truffle is somewhat diminished.
If white dots appear on your truffle, clean by running under cold water. Dry well. White dots can also be expected.
The Madame likes to store her truffle in a closed container overnight with eggs (eggs in their shells that is). The aroma of the truffle transfers through the shell making ‘truffly eggs.’ Enjoy truffled scrambled eggs for breakfast, lunch or dinner… and use the truffle for another dish.
