How Do You Know You’re Buying Real Black Perigord Truffles?

Here are a few tips on how you can make sure that you’re buying the black Perigord truffle (Tuber Melanosporum), and not its summer cousin.

  • You’re purchasing it in late fall or in winter, obviously.
  • It has a potato-like shape and dark black or charcoal skin with pyramidal warts.
  • When you cut it, you can see that it’s also black on the inside. And its black interior is pervaded with white veins.
  • If it’s fresh, you’ll smell an enticing mixture of aromas: mushroom, wet earth, strawberry, and raw cocoa.

How Does Your Order Look Like?

You’ll receive a package of fresh truffles, shipped from France or Italy only a day before. Because we deliver natural truffles, the size and color of each individual mushroom may be different.

While the price is set for one ounce, the typical weight of the truffles is about 1.3 oz. You’ll be charged based on the actual weight of your order and current market price.

How Do You Store Black Winter Truffles?

The shelf life of the Perigord truffle is five-seven days. Here’s what you should do to keep these mushrooms safe and sound until the day you use them.

  • The truffles should be dry. Use a paper towel to gently remove moisture from them.
  • Wrap each mushroom in a new paper towel and put it into an airtight container. Place the container on the upper shelf of the fridge.
  • Change the wrapping towels daily and wipe moisture from the truffles, if needed.

How Do You Add Fresh Black Truffles to Your Menu?

One thing to remember is that fresh truffles shouldn’t be cooked thoroughly like other fresh mushrooms. Actually, you’ll eat the truffle raw.

Slice a truffle and top ready dishes with these fragrant paper-thin slices. Or add a few slices in very end of cooking, right before you turn off the heat.

Black truffles ideally accompany your pasta, foie gras, and risotto.
