Our canned truffles are high-quality summer truffles, Tuber aestivum, carefully brushed, washed and preserved with truffle juice and sea salt. They are harvested and packaged in the Perigord region of France, by a fourth-generation family in the truffle business since the 1800s. A close cousin of the Burgundy truffle (Tuber unicinatum), black summer truffles are similar in appearance to the black winter truffles, except that they are lighter in color. They are also more delicate in flavor and have a wonderful, slightly nutty aroma with notes of hazelnut and fresh earth. Summer truffles have prominent black scales and a firm beige flesh with white veining. Our whole summer truffles are consciously chosen for size and shape to ensure uniformity when slicing; they are perfect for shaving onto a dish right before serving or using in a recipe where the truffles will feature prominently. Use them in pasta, eggs or cheese dishes or to finish sauces or stews.
Our line of canned whole truffles, truffle peelings and truffle juice make the perfect alternatives when the fleeting seasons for fresh truffles are over.
