Merryn's Menu: Truffle Salt - Made in my kitchen: Truffle Salt I love Truffle Salt, the delightfully aromatic and delicious salt that is perfect sprinkled on all foods, from fried eggs to vegetable tempura and roast beef. Delicious truffle salt is easy to make in your kitchen too!
I love Truffle Salt, the delightfully aromatic and delicious salt that is perfect sprinkled on all foods, from fried eggs to vegetable fritters and fresh, hot steamed asparagus. Truffle Salt is incredibly Unique.
The first time I tried truffle salt was years ago when I purchased it directly from a Truffle Grower in Australia.
I was instantly smitten by the amazing taste sensation.
Since then a bottle is always in my pantry.
Here is a precious black truffle weighing 8.5 grams.
This is natural sea salt
from a health food store.
Place two 8.5 gram black truffles
into a small food processor or blender.
Pulse for one minute until they are roughly chopped.
Add 150g coarse natural sea salt
and whiz for 2 minutes.
You will see the black truffles chopped into
and combining with the sea salt.
Now, you have created truffle salt.
A truly originally flavoured salt
that tastes like nothing else you have ever eaten.
Sprinkle it on french fries, or spaghetti aglio, oilo e peperoncino
or perhaps a fresh rare piece of beef eye fillet.
Enjoy, the phenomenal aroma and exhilarating taste of truffle salt.
Buon appetito, enjoy, Merryn.
