What a great surprise – it's now the summertime and there are black truffles available to be purchased for anyone! Black truffles are very versatile, so it is no surprise that they have become so popular this year. They're not just for Christmas, they're for the holidays! And who doesn't like to eat chocolate? But these truffles are even better, as they taste like chocolate, but are not too overpowering. These truffles are also quite expensive compared to regular chocolate and they take forever to get from store to store.
Unique taste, love it! Great packaging. Perfectly packaged.
A friend of mine recently posted on her Facebook that she was never interested in chocolate but had been eating one of these truffles. After reading the review, I sent the black truffles, with an ice cube, to her and asked if she liked them. She loved the salt, and the sweet chocolate taste, but didn't care for the sea salt in the outside. The packaging is pretty cool.
This is another reason why sea salt makes a great addition to your table at any mealtime. You can use it with just about anything. You could add it to your dessert if you don't mind an extra splash of sweetness. For example, a strawberry and black truffles dessert might look a little out of place, but it is surprisingly delicious.
Another reason why black truffle salt are such a hit this year is because of the season. There is a certain type of person that loves all things that are dark and earthy, and this is definitely that.
For those of us that are used to eating food during the fall and winter holiday season, the only way to enjoy a good truffle is to go out shopping for it. This year I'm going to be buying my truffles at the store, which means less time and mess for me. However, I am still sure to find the perfect truffles to top off the Christmas or Thanksgiving dinner table. I've also decided to make a variation on a traditional truffle dish. Instead of using them for the main dish, I will be putting them on crackers as the filling.
It's a trifle that will bring a smile to my face every time I try it. I like to make this trifle with the traditional truffles, with cream, nuts, cinnamon, and orange blossom water. This is a traditional treat for spring and fall. Then I drizzle some black truffles over the top and cherry or orange juice, and you'll have a delicious fruit trifle! This is sure to be a hit at any party!
I can see myself getting more excited each year about these truffles. I'm sure you will be too. So if you haven't tried these little gems yet, then I suggest you pick up a box of black truffles and start making memories for yourself today.
To make your own black truffles, you will need a trifle maker, some sea salt, and the truffle-making method. To get started, you will need some sea salt that has been finely ground and some sugar. The next step is to cut some truffles into squares or triangles.
Next, take your black truffles and sprinkle a little bit of black truffle sea salt over them. After they have completely cooled down, add the sugar and mix in a little bit of vanilla extract. When you feel it is smooth and soft, remove them from the baking sheet and place them in a glass bowl to keep them warm while they set.
Next, take your bowl and drizzle some vanilla extract over them and shake them up to coat them. This will add a nice smell to the truffle. Then add the trifle making method into the bowl. If you want a smooth consistency, you can throw them in the refrigerator to harden up. If you would prefer to use lumpy truffles, just place them in the bowl of the trifle maker.
Now, to make your truffles, place the bowl into your trifle maker and turn it on. In order to create the proper shape, turn on your mixer attachment and let the machine do its work. Then add the truffles and shake until they are uniform in size. After you are done making a round trifle, remove them from the bowl and place them into the serving bowls.
