Black truffles are one of the most luxurious and expensive truffles on the market today. Black truffles have a very rich, nutty flavor that is simply divine. Many people enjoy truffles and love to eat them, but not many people know how to make them themselves. Making your own black truffle salt takes very little effort and only a few ingredients. This article will help you learn how to make black truffle salt and discover why it is one of the most expensive and delectable flavors available.
Before we begin, let me tell you a little bit about black truffle salt. Most truffles that you find in stores will be prepared with a coarse form of salt. This is typically kosher salt or table salt. The exact kind of salt used in every single truffle will also vary greatly. Some will be very coarse, some very fine grain, and others may even be old sea salt. No matter which form of salt is used, all of them will lack one key ingredient such as minerals.
It's true! While this form of salt isn't as beneficial to your health as refined salt (which contains tons of unwanted chemical agents), it still has a number of health benefits that aren't found in refined salt. For example, unrefined salt is rich in magnesium, calcium, and potassium. By adding a pinch of black truffle salt to your cooking, you can enjoy even more of these healthy mineral benefits! But don't stop there, unrefined salt is also rich in sodium, phosphorus, and iodine!
It's also rich in antioxidants! Did you know that black truffles contain no fewer antioxidants than a glass of red wine with dinner? That's right, the salt you buy at the store has the same amount of antioxidants as a glass of red wine. The difference is that they're both organic, harvested from the highlands of France.
There are several different varieties of Italian black truffle salt available. They vary by production methods as well. Most come from mountains in the Mediterranean, and many have been harvested right here in the United States. The highest quality varieties are harvested in the high Alps. But if you're not into skiing, you'll find fine varieties to be found all over the world.
There are many benefits to Italian black truffle salt. They're naturally flavored so you don't have to worry about being overpowered by the flavors of the other ingredients. This makes them a wonderful addition to a wide range of dishes, whether they're made using eggs, meats, or vegetables. They also go great in many desserts. One popular recipe calls for blackeyed truffles, which are very similar, except this time we use the black truffle salt to create a salty flavor instead of the delicious sweet taste of the fruit.
One of the most popular ways to use Italian black truffle salt is for seasoning baked potatoes. I love to set baked potatoes on top of the coals of my stove. It adds a nice flavor to the potatoes before the finished product. Another way to enjoy these salty sponges is to mix them with some olive oil, butter, and lemon juice. You can then place them on top of your favorite crackers to eat while you enjoy your morning toast. You can see how adding this sort of seasoning to your cooking lends a unique flavor to your everyday dishes.
