Under the earth, far from the light and noise, truffles take a few months to ripen near the roots of holm oaks, oaks and other trees.
Once they have been dug out, it is essential to keep caring for this underground fungus so it retains all its properties.
Trufato provides the best transport and packaging to ensure that the fresh truffles are conserved according to their temperature and moisture needs.
Once at their destination, truffles can keep for a week in the fridge and almost ten months in the freezer.
In the freezer, it is advisable to protect the truffles from moisture by wrapping each one in absorbent paper that should be changed every day.
Plus, to prevent them from losing their scent, they should be stored in an air-tight container which should be opened occasionally to allow the truffles to “breath”. They can be stored along with other foods like eggs or butter if you want them to take on the scent and flavour of the truffle.
To extend the amount of time they can remain fresh in the fridge to one year, you can conserve the truffles in their own liquid. To do so, just place clean truffles in a glass jar, cover them with brandy or dry white wine, and cover and boil in a bain-marie until a vacuum seal is created.
