How do Truffles grow?
The process of growing truffles can take anywhere from three to four years on average, and yield frequent disappointment. There are a few steps involved:
- You inject special fungi spores into oak or hazelnut trees when the trees are just seedlings, with each tree being a good distance from the next one.
- As the trees grow, the truffles likewise grow underground by attaching themselves to the tree roots.
- The truffles and host trees experience a symbiotic relationship, during which the truffles help the tree get nourishing phosphorous from the soil while the tree roots feed glucose to the growing truffles.
- When it comes time to harvest, farmers use trained dogs or pigs to sniff out the distinct truffle aromas. This is also called truffle hunting.
- Whilst truffle hunting can be fun, often farmers come up empty-handed due to a range of factors: climate, soil, and luck.
What Do Truffles Look Like?
Most people are familiar with the two general categories: black truffles and white truffles.
- Black truffles tend to have a rough and granular exteriors resembling solid clumps of dirt . The inside of the black truffle, however, looks almost like wagyu beef.
- White truffles, tend to resemble a rough-skinned potato on the outside. On the inside, they exhibit the kind of marbled mushroom quality that you find in black truffles, although in a slightly different form.
What Do Truffles Taste Like?
Black truffles give off a pungent aroma and usually taste better when cooked.
Often people describe the flavour as nutty, earthy, woody, mushroomy, and even a little chocolatey.
White truffles are a bit more subtle by comparison. They give off a musky aroma and deliver a taste that’s typically described as being lightly garlicky.
