Luxury and aromatic, bulk Black Truffle Sea Salt creates a delightful combination of natural sea salt and prized Italian black truffle. One of Italy s most beloved culinary delights, the Italian black truffle contains a distinctly earthy mushroom taste which many chefs and food lovers treasure for its power to elevate their culinary experience. Made from a selection of primarily natural Italian clay quarries and seawater, this premium-grade salt contains a rich blend of minerals, including calcium, magnesium, sodium, iron, zinc, and selenium. For years, the black truffle's popularity in Italy was built on its effectiveness as a cure for the common cold. This was an indirect result of a long-standing practice of curing meats and fish with specialized sea salts.
The renowned truffle is a luxurious treat best enjoyed when just the salt is used. Unlike many other culinary delights that use the flavorful powder form of truffle, when the edible part of the cheese is ground, it loses many of its essential attributes. In particular, the saltier the cheese, the less moisture it will retain, and the less "water" the cheese has, the more quickly it will begin to dry out. This delicate balance between retaining flavor and retaining moisture is one of the reasons why many experts agree that the best truffle salt for cooking is the unsalted variety. Although the unsalted form retains more moisture than the creamy white variety, the flavor may be somewhat less intense.
It is the combination of rich flavors and smooth texture that create the truly remarkable black truffle sea salt. Like many gourmet ingredients, it is enhanced when heated to intensify its flavor and moisten its texture even further. And like many foods, it improves with age, like most gourmet food, the older it is, the deeper and more intense its flavor becomes. For this reason, many experts suggest that you buy your Italian black truffle salt from a gourmet food shop, and keep it in a cool and dark place. This will help to maintain its freshness and keep it at the optimum crystallization level for maximum flavor.
One of the most common uses for this earthy gem is in seasoning baked meats and fish. Because it renders a rich flavor when incorporated into bread and cakes, it is also perfect for breading chicken and turkey. You can make wonderful bread by combining it with fresh vegetables or herbs, such as Rosemary, oregano, sage, or thyme. Another way to enjoy it is to blend it with egg whites to make an amazingly light and delicate cake. Another way to enjoy black truffle sea salt and its delicious blend with other ingredients are to add it to smoothies or use it to spice up a bland salad.
Other than being one of the most popular ingredients for bread and cakes, it has also been widely known for being an excellent addition to certain alcoholic beverages. For example, it goes great with beer. There are some people who refer to it as a sherry substitute. Whatever you call it, you can be sure that you'll be able to come up with an extensive list of foods that will be enhanced with the inclusion of it.
A truffle salt recipe usually contains pasta. It works especially well when it's combined with low-fat milk, cheese, or yogurt. Although it does have a slightly salty taste, it has been proven to be a good cooking agent when combined with eggs, cream, or milk. This is because it helps to release the flavors from the pasta and vegetables, resulting in an exquisite mixture that brings out the natural flavors in it.
When preparing the pasta, you need to make sure that you combine it with the other ingredients, such as cheese, eggs, and mushrooms, all of which go great with this unique Italian cuisine dish. First, you need to start by lining a large baking tray with low-temperature foil. Next, cook the pasta according to the package directions by placing them in a single layer on the baking tray.
You need to cook the pasta until it begins to mush. Once done, add it to the baking soda and balsamic mixture. Finally, sprinkle it with black truffle salt so that it may retain the color and flavor of the sea. Allow it to sit for five minutes before serving. Now you know exactly how to make an exquisite dish using this delectable Italian seasoning.
