Black Truffle Salt & Other Flavors

Rich, aromatic, and luxurious, bulk Black Truffle Sea Salt has a smooth, creamy texture and a rich, intense flavor. Used in fine restaurants, for baking, seasoning, and stirred around the menu for exotic flavors, this salty treat is perfect for holiday favorites, perfect for parties, and as table salt. At home, it goes great on just about any food. It mixes well with fish, chicken, cheese, and eggs. It's also a good mixer if you want to make your own bread or crackers. And it's ideal for people who like to snack on salty foods and sea salt works great with cheese.

Making black truffle salt is pretty simple. It can be used in many different ways and the flavor can vary depending on how it's used. If you're planning to sprinkle it on baked pasta, simply mix it with a bit of regular salt and some oregano, pepper, onion powder, lemon juice, or vinegar. Alternatively, you could combine chopped vegetables, cheese, olives, or lemon slices, some black pepper, dried garlic, parsley, some sea salt, and some milk to create a creamy, cheesy coating for your pasta dish.

Another way to enjoy black truffle salt on your diet is in the form of Popcorn. Of course, you can always eat plain old popcorn. But if you're in the mood for something different, try grilling with olive oil. Just use a tablespoon or two of the salty treat and drizzle over the top before tossing in the kernels. Alternatively, you could try caramelizing onions, mushrooms, and peppers to give your popcorn a unique flavor.

Sprinkling fresh black truffle sea salt onto your veggies is a great way to spruce up your salads. You can make these healthy snacks using spinach, asparagus, carrots, summer squash, or any summer vegetables that you have at home. If you're not a big fan of spinach, consider sprinkling some sun-dried tomatoes, olives, or mint on top of your salad for a wonderfully fresh aroma that will enhance the taste of your greens. For a great summertime treat, mash up some fresh strawberries, peaches, or prunes and sprinkle them on top of some warm balsamic vinegar. Delicious!

As for appetizers, you can toss black truffle with some pine nuts, olives, spicy mustard, and olive oil for an amazing appetizer dish that will set your taste buds on fire. If you are feeling a bit adventurous, try making a pesto sauce using chickpeas, mushrooms, zucchini, broccoli, and eggplant. Cook it on the stove and then toss it with some olive oil, lemon juice, and basil to make a delectable and flavorful pasta dish.

Another great idea for entrees is truffle fettuccini with some fresh, sharp truffle salt. Cook the fettuccine noodles in just enough olive oil so that they don't stick. Drain them, slice them and add about two teaspoons of the truffle salt to each individual piece. Stir to mix the ingredients and cook for about seven minutes until the pasta is al dente. Add some broccoli florets and sauteed mushrooms and toss it all together until it's a tasty, but thoroughly cooked pasta.

Finally, one of the most popular dishes to pull out of a black truffle kit is a truffle crust. This is simply a piece of work, rolled in a piece of aluminum foil and crimped with a fork to form a crust. It's topped with black truffle salt and some extra olive oil for that salty feel. The classic is to use a toothpick to pierce the bread and let the flavors flow through. This isn't necessary though, just an idea to add a little something different.

There are so many different combinations possible. I've seen them all done differently, some with different herbs such as Rosemary or garlic. Some put a cream cheese garnish over the top. Others include blue cheese or a nice shredded chicken complementing the mushrooms. With a little imagination, you can come up with a variety of ways to make this dish your own.
