Fine Black Truffles Sea Salt combines fine-grained sea sand with delicate black summer truffles for a delicate, complex, and mouthwatering seasoning that adds depth and flavor to seafood. Black summer truffles come from the most expensive mushroom in the world the Morinda citrifolia. Although not as highly valued as the more common white truffles, this variety is a bit different from most, creating a unique sea salt offering.
Fine black Truffle Sea Salt was created by blending two of the rarest species available for harvesting the Black Truffle Mushroom and the Sea Salt itself. The Black Truffles can be found only in very small numbers each year, making it a very limited commodity. When harvested, the mushrooms grow very slowly, taking over a year or longer to produce a single truffle. As a result, the black truffle season is considered to be quite short, which makes fine truffle salt a popular treat and an important part of any seafood collection.
Fine black Truffle Sea Salt is harvested from the sea floor. The mushrooms are harvested in the spring, which creates an exquisite, slightly salty taste in the mushrooms. Since they are harvested so slowly, the black truffles retain their distinct, exotic flavor, as well as their characteristic, "black" color. These mushrooms are also used for medicinal purposes since they are highly absorbent and have been used in Japan for centuries for the treatment of a wide range of ailments.
Fine Black Truffle Sea salt is considered to be one of the richest sources of high-quality truffles on the market today. These delicate little fungi can be harvested in many sizes and colors from small, round mushrooms, to large, mushroom-shaped ones, and even mushrooms with small, "crimpy" cap. Each type of truffle is individually hand-picked, ensuring that its freshness is not compromised and that no extra moisture is lost during drying. Fine black truffle sea salt can be used for cooking purposes, particularly in French and Italian cooking, in place of regular sea salt. For example, sea salt and pepper popcorn are often paired together to create an exciting and delectable "pizza taste", and aroma or the salty "popcorn" served at New Orleans and other fancy restaurants can be an excellent addition to stews, soups, and chili.
If you love to bake, fine black truffle sea salt adds a unique texture to your recipes. In fact, in some areas of France, the herb is also sometimes used in baking. It is often used to add a pleasant scent to cakes and pastries, and can also be sprinkled on ice cream in place of regular milk or cream.
Fine black truffle sea salt has a unique property of "filling in" the cracks and spaces of a slice of pizza, reducing the amount of crust and increasing the amount of inside moisture, resulting in a crisper crust and crispier crust. This unique property of this sea salt is the reason that so many people have turned to it for their pizza toppings.
Fine black truffle sea salt is available in many forms, including bags, bars, and tablets, and is often combined with regular sea salt to make recipes more flavorful and delicious. However, if you do not like salt, you can use truffle flakes for the same effects.
Truffles come in a variety of different shapes. They range from small, round, mushroom shaped mushrooms to large, crimpy ones, and in color from white to black. Although most people consider them just a garnish, there are some who regard the truffles themselves as an important part of the food.
Because the truffles come in so many different types, a number of recipes have evolved from different cultures around the world. The most popular are French, Italian, and Chinese recipes, but many recipes from the Middle Eastern and Latin American countries have also evolved.
Black truffle salt is great as table salt, used as a garnish for desserts, used as an ingredient in sauces, and sprinkled over salads, or used to season baked potatoes, rice, or pasta. It is also good as a salad dressing for chicken and pork. As mentioned above, it is also sometimes sprinkled on ice cream or popcorn and can also be used as a topping on cookies, cakes, muffins, or bread. It can even be added to a salad for an extra special flavor.
