TRUFFLE POWDER, BLACK - Kosher/Gluten Free

TRUFPOWB-1

Description:

These highly prized tubers are considered the “Black Diamonds” of the kitchen and are the most famous Truffles in the world! What makes Black Truffles so popular? The flavor of the Black Truffle is pervasive in a subtle way and some describe its smell as earthy, musky and pungent, even addictive! Hard to come by, Black Truffles are fungi (tuber) that grow underground in soil ranging from 2 inches up to 10 to 15 inches deep. Truffles form symbiotic relationships with some varieties of deciduous trees, including oak, beech, hazel and poplar, but cannot be found on maples or cedars. Sought out by specially trained dogs (hogs were used most often in the past) with their keen sense of smell, Truffles look like what their Latin term implies, a tuber or "lump". Thought to be an aphrodisiac by some they are extremely popular in International cuisine. Black Truffle Powder can be used to flavor pate, sauces, egg dishes, butters and oils.  Black Truffle Powder is from the United States.
