Oregon White Truffles
) that grow around Douglas firs, in Silverton, Oregon with his dogs Mocha and Dante.
Oregon White Truffles, different from European white truffles, have a nose reminiscent of butter, roasted hazelnut and include fruity, herbal notes. The smell can be intense! The actual flavor is often milder than black truffles.
We're offering 1 ounce Oregon White Truffles. The truffles may be in one piece or a few different truffles to get to 1 ounce total.
Storage: Store fresh truffles in the refrigerator in a plastic container wrapped loosely in a paper towel. Or, in a jar with rice to absorb excess liquid. Open the lid once a day to allow CO2 to escape.
Use: Use a microplane or truffle slicer. These shaving truffles are best when sliced directly on to hot fatty food like pasta with cream sauce or macaroni and cheese.
These truffles will be overnight shipped to us just in time to deliver to you. Summer truffle season in Oregon is May to July, as long as there's enough rain!
