This is the best of black truffles. After being harvested, Truffles are carefully examined and first choice truffles are selected. 1st boiling truffles are only cooked once (instead of twice) in water for approximately 2 hours before being preserved and canned. Every time a truffle is cooked, it looses a bit of aroma, so 1st boiling truffles keep more aroma than regular preserves. This product is mostly used by professional chefs, but at Truffes.com, we believe that all our customers deserve the best and we make it available to retail gourmet customers.
