The summer truffle (Tuber aestivum) is a close cousin of the Burgundy truffle (Tuber unicinatum), and is usually in season from April to mid-September. But with our canned truffle peelings, which contain only real truffle slices, not breakings, you can have true truffle flavor any time of the year.
Harvested in France during the season, these summer truffles are carefully brushed, washed and sliced thinly. They are steamed and preserved with truffle juice, sea salt, and nothing else.
Black summer truffles are similar in appearance to the black winter truffles, though they are lighter in color. With prominent black scales and a firm, white-veined beige flesh, summer truffles have a more delicate flavor and a wonderful, slightly nutty aroma with notes of hazelnut and fresh earth.
Use them in pasta, eggs or cheese dishes, or to finish sauces or stews with a flourish. Our preserved truffle products are the perfect alternative when the fleeting season for fresh truffles comes to an end.
Cooking & Serving
Our truffle peelings are steeped in truffle juice to preserve them, and impart a lovely truffle essence to anything they touch. Be sure to save and use the juice in a sauce or dressing, or stirred into whatever you make with the peelings.
Try these truffle peelings tossed with pasta, eggs or cheese dishes, or use them to finish creamy sauces. They are especially useful in recipes like mac ‘n’ cheese, whipped potatoes, ravioli or risotto. Try them on top of canapés, paired with other mushrooms and as an accent to anything with truffle butter in it. Enhance the flavor of simply-seasoned grilled steaks by finishing them with a pat of butter topped with some summer truffle peelings.
