8 oz Premium Urbani Fresh Summer Truffles (Tuber Aestivum Vitt)

Summer truffles are now known and appreciated all over the the world. Picking season goes from May to September. Summer truffles are usually found in limestone terrains, oakwoods and pinewoods. Classic recipe is the summer truffle sauce made by adding the grated summer truffles to warm olive oil (warm but not boiling), a touch of garlic, salt and pepper. This sauce is used on bruschettas, spaghetti, meat, fish or you can slice on a salad to create a very special dish. We recommend consuming the truffles as soon as possible. Product life: 1 to 2 weeks, kept into a refrigerator at 37.5 °F (3 °C), wrapped in paper towel. 

Interesting facts about truffles: Truffles are effectively the most expensive food item in the world, because they are so rare and they are still hunted by dogs. It is because these little fungi are so precious, that we all need to understand the difference between the valuable, prized truffles such as Urbani truffles and other truffles.  Truffles grown in China, for example, are of a different strain, and they do not possess the taste and qualities that those in Italy do.  For this reason, those truffles could be 30 to 50 times cheaper than their European brethren.  So how do we distinguish between the truffles?  We have a tip for you.  Look closely at the latin name of the truffle - the ones that are generally not highly valued are Tuber Indicum, Tuber Sinense, and Tuber Himalayense.  Latin names for the typical valuable Italian black truffles are Tuber Aestivum Vitt and Tuber Melanosporum Vitt.
