The Summer truffle also known as “Truffes de la Saint Jean” is harvested in the heart of Provence, France from mid April to the beginning of August. It has a more subtle flavour than the Winter truffle.

These truffles are preserved whole in a mix of water and salt. They’re not as fragrant or aromatic as fresh truffles, but rather very mild and subtle. While fresh truffles are shaved thinly into an already prepared dish (not cooked), with jarred truffles you can experiment a bit more (the price is more forgiving). A little heat brings out the flavor, so cooking is recommended.

Chop or slice the truffles and add them to cream or butter-based sauces. Preserved truffles are excellent mixed with scrambled eggs for a glamorous breakfast, tossed into a salad vinaigrette, added to pasta or risotto, or mixed with butter to spread over toast for a great appetizer. Let them steep in olive oil and use for any preparation. Add them to truffle oil or truffle butter for more of a flavor impact.

This jar contains whole truffles sourced by French company, Plantin, who are located close to the two major French truffle markets (Richerenches and Carpentras).
