truffle & our friends™ truffles 99% to fresh allows you to indulge in European truffles at any time of year. As Mother Nature only creates these treasures seasonally, you were formerly limited solely to truffle-infused products whilst your cravings for the freshly foraged gems pressed on throughout the year when they were out of season. Though there is nothing wrong with using infused products, we even encourage you to do so; it is just not the same as the exquisite liking of a fresh truffle.

With the preserved truffles 99% to fresh, your cravings can be met anytime you like and to the extent ever so close to the experience of indulging in a fresh truffle. With this unique technique, you can have dehydrated natural truffles that have maintained 99% of their flavour properties at hand in your cupboard year-round.

Origin & Production

About four-fifths of a truffle contains water and the remaining one-fifth are, amongst others, the proteins, soluble fats and minerals where the actual aromas and flavours arise from. The evaporation of water from the truffle is the culprit of the quick deterioration upon being picked out of its natural habitat in the soil.

truffle & our friends™ preserved truffles 99% are produced through a highly innovative and unique method, in which the fresh truffle is freeze-dried in a vacuum cabinet. This extrudes the water that the truffle contains, while still preserving 99% of its flavour and the vast majority of its aromas. The process is solely technical and without chemicals, which leaves us with the same 100% natural product as from the start, only dehydrated to a fifth of its actual size.

Characteristics

There are so many delicate fragrances and flavours the very premium truffles in the Tuber family so it is nearly impossible to describe them all. You will find earthy, woody tones and scents of mild garlic and shallots in the Tuber magnatum pico and uniquely fragrant with clear woody, earthy notes, peppery to the nose with aromas like saffron, petrol and dark chocolate in the Tuber melansporum or Tuber macrosporum just to name a few. With the 99 % to fresh, the vast majority of flavours and aromas is preserved and allows you to enjoy this seasonal product year-round.

Directions

Crumble the truffle over a very hot dish like a steaming risotto. Let it rehydrate from the steam for a few minutes, which will allow the truffle to release its unique flavour on its own.

Sliced truffles can be reconstituted. Reconstitute by using warm water and soaking until soft and tender then use in any recipe. Save the water in which the truffles have soaked, as it’s jus can be used as a part of a broth in soups or sauces to add a truffle flavour.
