Firstly, truffles are being soaked in cold water for few minutes; with the helping hand of a soft brush, the excess soil is cleaned under running water. Once dried, the truffles will be then ready to be used in delicious recipes; may they be shaved or grated (summer and winter truffles): your truffles will be pivotal to the taste of your dishes: time to get going and experiment!
Fresh truffles are to be kept in the refrigerator at all times, at a temperature between +2°/+6°, wrapped in kitchen paper and stored in an airtight container (preferably made of plastic), always checking on the truffle conditions and making sure to change the paper every day so that truffles are not
subject to damp. If stored correctly, truffles will preserve freshness and quality up to 7/8 days in the case of white truffles and spring truffles, which are generally more sensible than winter and summer black truffle, that can certainly be stored for a longer period of time. Usually, whenever truffles are harvested during colder seasons their conservation time is generally longer. However, it is always important to bear in mind that every different kind of truffle has a very own ripening point; we therefore advise to make use of the truffles at their freshest in order to fully taste their most precious characteristics, as one would do with other products that come from the earth.
