One of the most delicious and versatile chocolate varieties available today is black truffle sea salt. In fact, you can find this salt in the very first grade of chocolate produced. It was initially chosen because of its distinctive dark color (usually reddish-brown with black specks and/or streaks), which is how the word 'truffle' got attached to it in the first place. These dark spots are actually smaller holes that have become larger over time so that they can host smaller fungi. Black truffle salt offers the most health benefits when compared to other forms of chocolate.
A truffle, also known as a conchiot, is the reproductive organ of a tiny subterranean meadow-dwelling fungus, mainly one of the genera of the family of the same name. In fact, the scientific name for this fungus is Tuberculana, while the common name is'sea salt'. In addition to Tuberculana, many other fungi are also classified as truffles, such as Geopora, Leucangium, Chlamydomonas, Pterocarpus, and more than a hundred others. These species are collectively referred to as sea salt because their salts are harvested from seaweed on natural coastlines around the world.
The black truffle sea salt contains a high concentration of antioxidants. This is the result of the numerous natural antioxidants present in the plant's leaves and stems. The chlorophyll in the plant is also particularly beneficial to human health, several studies have shown that eating chlorophyll-rich green leafy vegetables (i.e. spinach, kale, mustard greens, etc.) can slow down the aging process, lower bad cholesterol levels, and prevent cell cancer. So, using this salt on a daily basis is very healthy.
But here's the interesting bit about this gemstone. Unlike most artificial salts used for culinary purposes, salts produced from black truffle salt are completely natural and organic. This is largely due to the way this salt is harvested from the soil around the mushrooms. Harvesting the mushrooms in this manner preserves almost all of the truffle's natural flavor and scent, while also retaining the plant's carbon dioxide content, which is what gives the salts their special flavor. It seems that harvesting these mushrooms in this natural way has allowed this salt to gain popularity not only for its use as a seasoning but also as an authentic flavor ingredient in cooking.
Because of their unique black truffle salt flavor, these French fries have become very popular around the world. Of course, it should be noted that while this truffle seasoning can help with the flavor of French fries, it is not the only thing that is responsible for their appeal. The fact that they are made with real French fries makes them stand apart from other ingredients. The uniqueness of their outer shell, or the "pate" as it is called in French, helps to make them even more appealing. In fact, you can use them with almost any type of French fries.
But did you know that black truffle salt can be used in a variety of different recipes? And that is just the tip of the iceberg. Most people enjoy taking a piece of this seasoning on everything from grilled fish to vegetable dishes. Many people have discovered the wonderful flavor of using it in order to bring out the natural flavor of eggs or cheesecakes. The truth is, you really can't go wrong when you use this salt on any of your favorite dishes.
If you happen to prefer an even more traditional type of flavor, then you will be pleased to know that black truffle salt can also be used in a variety of savory and spicy recipes. If you love to scrambled eggs, you may want to try a recipe where you combine chopped pecorino russet potatoes with a handful of this beautiful seasoning. You may also want to scramble eggs using leftover turkey bacon or ham (or both) as the protein source. Both egg and turkey bacon are rich in antioxidant vitamins. And, depending on your preferences, you can adjust the amounts of both ingredients in order to create a more mild version of these savory delights.
Another great way to use black truffle salt is to mix them with lemon juice and a bit of olive oil. By doing so, you will be able to create a light and fresh solution for a delicious salad. Salads are naturally very popular during the spring and summer months because of their light, fresh nature. But, you can also create an equally healthy alternative to salads by incorporating this salty treat into your daily diet. Salads can also be paired with a variety of fresh cheeses and crackers, which will help you keep your meal plan on track. So, what are you waiting for?
