Shelf life

Once a packet is opened and stored in a domestic style freezer, flavour aspects will still be retained indefinitely.
A sealed container is still desirable as the lighter aroma aspects are still volatile at -18C

Usage

Depending on the dish 3-5 grams per person, per dish is generally a suitable amount.
For frozen truffle, Sauces etc are an obvious example often used in restaurants, but higher grade frozen truffle can even outperform early-season truffles in some dishes
Eg. roast poultry, and some egg recipes. But it is not suitable for aroma infusions.
Further usage tips during appointment or after contactless collection.

We use frozen truffle in condiments such as vegan truffle mayonaisse, aioli, butter.
It is superb in dishes such as eggs, carbonara, parmesan sauce, chicken, sousvide veal/pork dishes, roast turkey, mascarpone desserts, quiche, tarts etc.
some of which perform better than with fresh truffle, and experimentation is ongoing.

Spray Free

Our Truffle Orchard is run on organic principles, fostering the symbiotic relationship between the truffle and host tree. We believe there is no place in the production of a delicate, gourmet product for the use of either herbicide or pesticide sprays. which can also reduce flavour and aroma of truffles.
