The incredibly creamy, luxurious flavor of black truffle salt defies the description. This salty variation on the classic chocolate truffle is made by soaking Italian black truffle salt in the earth to unlock its nutty, and creamy flavors. The result is an incredibly smooth, velvety, and creamy salt that pairs beautifully with any type of meat, fish, cheese, or vegetable. Made using only the highest quality sea salt available, Black Truffle Sea Salt is considered by many to be the finest salt on the market.
To make the greatest savory dish you've ever had, combine three parts olive oil, one part white wine (white wine preferably), and one part black truffle salt. Heat olive oil in a frying pan until it becomes very hot, then add the wine and mix well with it. Allow the wine to boil before adding it to the oil. Scrape the wine mixture onto the crackers and allow it to melt. Then, using a food processor or blender, you can easily grind the mixture into fine dust.
This is also a great method to use when making fettuccini. Fine sea salt helps cut through the heaviness and stickiness of the fettuccini bean foam and allows for a more even cooking. Add the fine sea salt to your noodles after you have finished grinding them and before you add the cream cheese.
For cheesecake, it is best to add about two tablespoons each of black truffle sea salt and white wine vinegar. To make a paste with which to decorate a cake, simply blend together two to three tablespoons of goat cheese with about a quarter teaspoon of rock salt. The resulting paste should coat the entire cake evenly. When it comes to brownies, consider adding a bit of peppermint extract, nutmeg, or cinnamon. You can also add in chopped strawberries and raspberries for an earthy flavor. Sprinkle some confectioner's sugar on top and bake in the oven.
Another way to incorporate this into your cooking is to marinate the mushrooms and sliced Roma tomatoes in olive oil for about an hour or so. Drain off the excess oil and leave the tomatoes and mushrooms to soak for about another two hours. Put everything in a zip lock bag and either cook on the stove or in the oven at the recommended temperature.
Black truffle salt is certainly a classic ingredient for many dishes. Although the flavors of this are generally overpowering, it is a good idea to experiment with the combination you have up to this point. For example, you might consider slow-cooking the mushrooms instead of roasting them and then using the mixture to make light and crispbread. You can also use this in place of agave nectar to add to your favorite dessert recipes, such as chocolate chip cookies or ice cream.
Using black truffle salt alongside oregano and basil is a great way to incorporate the earthy flavor into your meals. Simply combine softened cheese, softened Italian salami, chopped mushrooms, and chopped scallions with a tablespoon or two of olive oil and combine. Heat it up on the stove until it is melting and then add the oregano and basil leaves. If you have a powerful garlic breath, you can also sprinkle crushed garlic cloves right into the mixture for a truly powerful aroma.
This is also a fantastic idea for enhancing the flavor of eggs. Combine softened Italian salami with a handful of softened sunny side-up mushrooms, chopped zucchini, and half a cup of chopped fresh basil leaves. Heat up the ingredients on the stove and then sprinkle in the black truffle sea salt and you will have an incredible egg salad that will have people coming back for more!
