Shelf life

Once a packet is opened and stored in a domestic style freezer, flavour aspects will still be retained indefinitely, but aroma aspects will reduce over the course of a few months.

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

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.
