Fresh truffles may be kept in an air-tight container in the refrigerator for up to a week. Keep them as dry as possible by wrapping each truffle in a paper towel. Replace the paper towel with a completely dry one each day.
*Fall and summer truffles present beautifully as a garnish, but are far more delicate in flavor and scent compared to their winter cousins. When cooking with fall or summer truffles, we suggest either doubling the amount you would normally use, or enhance their flavor with a touch of truffle salt, butter or oil.
