Sea Salt Truffle
A few years ago, my husband went out and bought some real Truffle Salt. I was shocked. He walked me through the entire process and it turned out to be very simple and inexpensive. And then, he took me shopping with him. I found that there are a lot of advantages to buying real Truffle Salt over any other artificial flavor enhancer on the market.
For starters, it’s remarkably different from other salt flavors. Unlike most “flavoring” salts, truffle salt actually has a naturally occurring mineral called Tyramine. It’s a very smoky, peppery flavor that some people love and others don’t. However, if you use truffle salt instead, you don’t have to worry about how you’d like the outside of your mouth to smell after it’s been brushed away with a toothbrush. Because it is naturally flavoring, you can absolutely make your food taste better than it would if you didn’t use Truffle salt.
Another great advantage to using this salt instead of others is that it has a very rich, intense, nutty flavor. You can use just a pinch of black truffles to completely overpower the other ingredients in your food without anyone even realizing it. Since you can buy it in powder form, you can also sprinkle the mixture on top of your food or on top of just about anything else, including ice cream, cookies, cakes, ice cream toppings, fruit, and even cooked foods such as fish, steak, and chicken.
Another great way to enjoy the unique flavor of this salt is in its liquid form. It comes in two distinct forms: grain salt and rock salt. Both are fine to use, though the grainy flavor of the rock salt is less pronounced. The grainy version of the truffle salt does have a significantly more powerful aroma, however.
You can also mix the truffle salt with a bit of olive oil. After melting the truffles in the olive oil, you can add them to the olive oil and heat it up until you reach your desired degree of thickness. Then, you can drizzle the truffles over your baked potatoes, vegetables, and other foods that are typically served with olive oil.
This salt also pairs well with white truffle salt. Traditionally, black truffle salt was often used in cooking because of its intense flavor. However, many chefs have begun substituting white truffle salt for a variety of reasons. Many people like the richer flavor that white truffle salt provides while still retaining the rich aroma of the original. Another reason many cooks are switching to this variety of salt is because it tends to have a higher melting point than the original variety, which means it also melts in the oven rather than in the microwave.
If you would like to introduce a new flavor or spice into your cooking, you can do so by using this type of salt instead of the original. A lot of people report that the flavor of the truffle-coated dish becomes much more rich and interesting to taste when they add this variety to their recipes. In fact, some even say that it makes foods taste better than they normally would! Adding this variety to your dishes certainly opens the door to new possibilities for food as you can now enhance the natural richness of the food without having to completely change the recipe itself.
It doesn’t matter if you are serving it at a formal party or whether you are enjoying it on your own at home. The ability of the sea salt to bring out the natural flavor in foods has made it a favorite addition to many fine dining establishments all over the world. If you are looking to take your cooking to the next level, consider trying this variety for your menu. You will surely be amazed by the wonderful transformation that it can make in the flavor and appearance of foods. So the next time you are looking for something extra special to add to your meals, look no further than sea salt for your answer.
