Black truffles smell very slightly like a beautiful perfume of truffles, but also have an earthy scent. After all, they come out of the ground. Many people expect a very overwhelming smell and taste of truffles because they are used to truffle tapenades and the like. Artificial flavor and aroma enhancers are almost always used for tapenades and the like. This is not the case with fresh black truffles! This is a natural product. If you want an enormously overwhelming scent, go for our fresh white truffles.
The smell and taste are therefore not very intense, but very delicate and refined. It is something very special to taste. That is why you do not heat your truffle in your dish, but only grate fresh truffle over your meal afterwards. You can put a lot of truffle over it.

With good care you can keep truffles nice and fresh . If the truffles show a little bit of mold, but still have a firm structure, then you don’t have to worry. You can brush them clean and they are still edible. After all, the truffle itself is a fungus. If you do not remove the fungus, a wet spot will form and the truffle will become inedible.
Finding fresh truffles with dogs
Because truffles are very difficult to find, animals have been used for this search for a long time. Many animals have a much better sense of smell than humans. For a long time, pigs were the big favorite. However, this presented difficulties. It went slowly and often when a truffle was found it was already eaten before the farmer arrived.
