Black Truffle Sea Salt
Black truffle salt with infused black truffles in it. A great finishing salt to enhance red meat, pasta, and vegetable dishes, as well as red wine.
Fine-grain size: FINE (0.3 mm-0.7 mm). PLEASE NOTE: Not recommended for salting food that has been cooked on the stovetop.
Fine-grain size: FILLER (1.2 mm-2.4 mm). Please Note: Use a larger container if you're using this size.
Fine-grain size: SLICE (3.3 mm-7 mm). Please Note: Slice the truffles vertically so that they don't spread out too much.
Fine Grain Size: SMOOTH (3.5 mm-6.4 mm). Please Note: It is important that you keep the smooth one in a cool, dry place. Otherwise, you risk them becoming very hard.
Fine Grain Size: RASP (3.5 mm-5.3 mm). Please Note: If you find it difficult to get the rasped ones, you can use the small ones instead.
Rough texture: ROAR (3.5 mm-4 mm). Please Note: This is not necessarily recommended by manufacturers.
A bit expensive, but worth buying if you can afford it. I would not buy any other sea salt with a strong taste and aroma, which is what this one has.
The good thing about it is that you do not have to look too far for it. You can find it in most stores and groceries. However, be sure that you are buying from an established store where quality and standards are maintained. There are also some online stores that claim to sell sea salts, but I would not trust them.
Always be sure that the salt you purchase is of good quality, no matter how much it costs. I wouldn't go into the trouble of hunting down the exact same kind of sea salt at another store, only to return it because it is of poor quality. It is better to stay away from them.
Also, check for packaging. Some suppliers will package their sea salt in a bottle that has a lidded cap or one that is screwed on tight to a container that has a lidded base.
This is not the kind of sea salt you want to leave in your kitchen, especially if you like to eat your meals hot. In case it's left unattended for long, it may become too hot and burning.
If you are a beginner, I would suggest that you choose a smaller sized jar or container, to begin with. Try using a pinch of sea salt and put a teaspoonful of water.
If you're using a pinch of sea salt, you can make it larger than needed and then just add more at a later stage. When you're comfortable with the amount, start adding the other ingredients.
To serve, simply pour it into a salt shaker and add it to the containers with your meal. Always stir until it melts evenly.
For those who are not familiar with it, this sea salt has a bitter taste and smell. It may sound like a big turn off, but it isn't. Once you taste it, you'll realize that this is a delicious seasoning, it is very well suited for appetizers, soups, and stews, as well as many different kinds of recipes.
Black truffle salt is also great as a filler or flavoring, in dips and spreads, as well as for making desserts. Its distinctive flavor blends perfectly with fruits, desserts, ice creams, chilled cakes, and candies.
I have always preferred this sea salt over other kinds, as I like the flavor and aroma. Of course, this would depend on how you want it to be used.
When shopping for black truffle sea salt, keep these simple points in mind. A quality product should last longer than other kinds, and you should avoid bad ones.
