Italian Truffles

Italian truffles are the aromatic winter white truffles that are full of flavour. They are also called the Alba truffles. This winter white truffles have a lovely flavour and they are used to add flavour to the pastas, pizzas, soups, and breads. These white truffles are more expensive than the black truffles, also found in Italy. The Italian truffles grow underground and are found five to six inches below the ground. There are as many as ten varieties of truffles found in Italy. These differ in their texture, taste, size, colour and aroma.

Italian truffles are of the black truffle variety that grows in the Umbria region of Italy. The size of this black truffle might vary from the size of a grape to the size of a potato. They normally grow underground. White truffles are generally harvested between the months of October to January.

There are several ways in which you can preserve these fresh Italian truffles. The whole truffles can be put into a brine solution or a preservative for storing the Italian truffles. The truffles can be chopped and sliced before being preserved. This means that the truffles are cleaned and can be used in the savouries directly. You can buy truffles preserved along with the peel or can buy truffles that are peeled and preserved. The truffles might be brushed and cleaned and then preserved. Flash freezing is also quick freezing in order to preserve the aroma in the truffles.

The preserved Italian truffles should not be consumed as is. Take the truffles out of the brine solution and dry it on a piece of paper. Then you can sauté the truffle in truffle butter or truffle oil to enhance the flavour. This will enhance the taste and the smell of the truffle!
